2019 Call for Nominations for the Board of Directors: Due March 12

Introduction

The work of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council continues to be critical in this time of increasing homelessness. The Council’s endeavors in education, research, training, and support of health centers and HCH programs across the country depend on the strong leadership of an informed and inclusive Board of Directors. We rely on the Board to be representative of Council membership and to help guide our efforts in meeting the needs of our community.

Please help us identify outstanding leaders committed to our mission of eliminating homelessness. The Council is now accepting nominations for new Board members and officers. Each Board member is eligible to serve up to two two-year terms. Officers generally serve one-year terms. Thank you in advance for your willingness to rise to meet the challenges of this difficult, yet rewarding work.

All nominations are due by March 12, 2019.

The Annual Meeting of the Governing Membership of the NHCHC will take place at 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 23, 2019, at the Grand Hyatt Washington in Washington, DC. At this meeting we will elect Board members and officers from your nominations. Any Individual Member or Organizational Member Representative may submit a nomination, and members are encouraged to self-nominate. The Nominating Committee will consider all submissions and prepare a slate for action by the Governing Membership.

Please review the Board diversity guidelines, Charge to the Nominating Committee, and information on the nomination process and eligibility.
