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. Members may make recommendations to the Directors of persons to be considered for nomination by submitting written recommendations to the Secretary of the Board not later than forty-five (45) days prior to the Annual Meeting or any Special Meeting called for that purpose. 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 – Executive Committee, Budget and Finance Committee, Governance Committee, Personnel Committee, Fund Development Committee, Building and Grounds, and Parent Involvement committee.
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 YSCCC 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.
