|On Being a CCA Board Member
If you’re new to CCA or have never volunteered on a Board, you might think that you’re unprepared to serve on the Board of Directors. This couldn’t be further from the truth. CCA is always looking for new energy and interesting ideas. A Board orientation and existing Board members can help you get up to speed, and comfortable in your role.
Board members are required to participate in bi-monthly meetings (six times a year). Most meetings are generally one-and-a-half hours long (90 minutes), and in person, unless you’re out of the Greater Toronto Area, in which case you would call into the meeting.
Some members of the Board also work on other projects such as the Golf Tournament, as a speaker at CARWACS, or helping organize a charity event. This is purely voluntary but where most of the work of the Association actually takes place. Participation on a committee or project is open to all CCA members, not just Board members. Your time commitment is completely dependent upon how much you volunteer to do.
What’s in it for You?
Along with leadership experience and being able to give back to your Association and the industry, there’s a lot to gain by being a Board member. CCA President, Jason Kaye says that, “serving on the Board has given me the opportunity to network with others in the industry, and these connections have not only been valuable personally, but they have helped grow my business. They keep me up to date with issues and trends”.
