Wanted: Board Members for SVP

SVP’s Board of Directors (comprised entirely of Partners) worked hard visioning and planning for our future, and now we’re making things happen! It’s a perfect time for new Board members to help us act on our goals for impact here in Boulder County. SVP is looking for one to three new Board Members to serve a three year term beginning in January.

SVP Boulder County’s Board of Directors is the governing body overseeing vision, mission, and internal operations of the organization. Board members hold overall fiscal and managerial oversight responsibility for SVP Boulder County. They are charged with the supervision and oversight of SVP Boulder County’s mission. Ultimately, board members serve as ambassadors for SVP Boulder County’s mission, inside and outside of organizational commitments.

No previous board experience is needed, and individuals who have been active SVP Partners for 6 months or longer are welcome to apply. The nomination process includes:

  • an online application (due by Sept 16),
  • two-way interview conversation with the Governance Committee (scheduled between Sept 21 – Oct 7),
  • attendance at the Oct 15 board meeting,
  • approval by the Board (Oct 15), and
  • vote by the full partnership (Nov 4).

All applicants will be contacted by the Governance Committee for an interview.

This is a powerful opportunity to learn about board best practice, develop your leadership skills, serve our mission, and create the SVP we all want! Review the SVP Board job description and apply online by September 16, 2015. Contact John McCorvie, Governance Committee, with questions.
