Become a Board member

We encourage people interested in running for election to the Board of Directors to first become a member of the clinic.  To learn more about becoming a Board member, please contact us.  A member of our Nominating Committee would be pleased to talk with you.

What kind of time commitment is required?

Board members are elected for one-year terms. The time commitments vary but typically include:

  • preparing for and attending at monthly Board meetings monthly for up to 2 hours
  • serving on one or more Board committees that meet once per month for up to 2 hours
  • attending at special Board/staff events
  • attending the Annual General Meeting

What kind of support is provided to the Board?

A special workshop is held annually for new Board members to orient them to their roles and responsibilities. A detailed Board manual provides information on the clinic, and the Board’s role and responsibilities. You can also participate in online and in-person training.

We also provide Directors and Officers insurance coverage and reimburse allowable travel expenses.
