About Us Governance

The Community Children's Center is a private, non-profit corporation. Each legal custodian (parent or guardian) of a child in the school is a member of the corporation for the term of the child's enrollment. The Board of Trustees is elected by the corporation members at the annual meeting in August, from a slate presented by the Nomination Committee. Nominations can also be taken from the floor at the annual meeting. A minimum of one of the Trustees must be parents or guardians of enrolled children. The Board elects from among its Trustees a president, vice president, a secretary and a treasurer. The Board attempts to be representative of the diversity of the corporate members.

The Board of Trustees is required to hold regular meetings in at least eight months of the year. With the exception of executive sessions (reserved for personnel or other sensitive matters), these meetings are open to members of the corporation and to the staff and administrators. Each agenda includes a "parent/guardian time" when parents/guardians may address the Board. Most of the work of the Board is conducted through standing committees – Personnel, Finance, Development, Parent/Guardian Advisory, Building and Grounds and Nominating. Corporate members and staff are encouraged to participate on committees.

The Board of Trustees is legally responsible for the control and management of the affairs of the corporation, subject to the will of the corporate members. However, the Board of Trustees of the CCC reserves the right to modify, amend, add or eliminate any policies or procedures at any time, without prior notice to, consultation with, or agreement from other parties. The Board provides leadership to the Center, recommending policies, priorities, projects and programs in accordance with Center's policy and philosophy, as outlined by the Board.
