Citizens for Public Justice is no longer accepting nominations to our Board of Directors.
Nominees need to:
- be a CPJ member.
- be a Christian.
- affirm that they agree with the document entitled “Public Justice for citizens, governments, and CPJ.”
- be willing and able to serve well and enthusiastically as a Board Member. (The Board usually meets twice a year, often in Ottawa, and holds video-conferences or committee meetings almost every month.)
The responsibilities of a board member are to:
- oversee the development and implementation of policy;
- approve program areas, new staff positions and hiring criteria;
- select and evaluate the Executive Director;
- approve the annual budget and any major expenditures that may not be included in the annual budget;
- support and participate in fundraising activities, including the annual telethon;
- participate in membership recruitment activities;
- participate in semi-annual two-day meetings and conference calls or email discussions between meetings;
- participate in board committees by conference call or email discussions; and,
- be a public face of CPJ in your geographic area, and help organize events in your area.
We ask each board nominee to respond briefly to the following questions:
- What is the value, purpose, or role of CPJ in your view?
- How can you contribute to CPJ as a Board Member?
- Give a brief biography of yourself.
