Membership. Access. Success.
CACNY’s Board of Directors are members who voluntarily serve the organization with their time and expertise to oversee the business of our nonprofit membership corporation. Working closely with CACNY's committees and staying in tuned to our members' needs, the Board is focused on carrying out the aims and mission of the organization and its membership.
Board members are elected to their posts by CACNY's membership. Each service term as an officer of the corporation is two years. Board of Director members may run for a second term, should an additional term be sought. No Board of Directors member may serve more than two consecutive terms.
The Board of Directors meets monthly and manages a variety of activities. These include organizing monthly networking meetings, cultivating new members, collecting dues, managing the CACNY website, overseeing CACNY working committees, and most of all, engaging with the membership.
