Join us for our Annual Meeting, Potluck and Board Elections on November 18 at 6 PM in the Chapel Hill Y Gym. The Annual Meeting will be family friendly, informational and procedural in meeting the election obligations for the Board.
Annual Meeting & Potluck Dinner
While the election is important, it is not the only purpose of the meeting. The Staff and Board want to highlight the successes we’ve seen this year, our hopes and dreams for the future as established in our long range plan, as well as share the current challenges we are working to address.
Below is the process for the 2014 election
The Y has an ambitious strategic plan outlining its mission, core values and three areas of focus – youth development, healthy living and social responsibility – that will guide our association for the foreseeable future. The plan also details objectives we plan to achieve during the next five years, as well as the strategies we will use to reach these goals. Please take a look. YMCA Strategic Plan
The Board of Directors is a rotating group of about 20 community volunteers (YMCA members and non-members) that meets monthly to oversee the Y’s activities. Operating under a set of bylaws, which the Board reviews annually, the Board collectively:
Board meetings are open to the public with the following conditions, as determined by the Board of Directors:
The Board strives to maintain a diverse membership that represents a cross-section of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro and Chatham County communities, including YMCA members, non-YMCA members, local businesspersons, UNC representatives, local school districts, community groups and others.
Each fall, the Board announces how many open seats need to be filled during the upcoming year and opens the application process to the public. A written application is required to be considered for Board membership. All are welcome to apply. Basic “requirements” include:
There are several standing or ad hoc committees designated by the Board’s Executive Committee that address specific areas of the YMCA:
• Board Development
• Fundraising and Development
Occasionally, the Board Chair or Executive Committee may request the creation of an “ad hoc” committee that exists only for a short time, and only for a specified purpose. Committees generally meet monthly, and report to the whole Board at the monthly Board meetings.
Participation on Board Committees is open to all. If you are interested in being on a committee, please send an email to email@example.com.
If you have questions or concerns to share with the YMCA Board, or if you would like to receive Board meeting minutes, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also access contact information for individual board members here.
