Executive Committee Positions Available

The NCCA Executive Committee met on Monday, June 12, to debrief the Spring Conference, plan for upcoming meetings, and address other business before the Association.  In reviewing Executive Committee Rotations, the Committee noted the following leadership opportunities:

Secretary (immediate opening Fall 2017): The Secretary records minutes of all Executive Committee meetings, as well as membership business meetings; distributes minutes and coordinates maintenance of approved minutes, reports, and handouts for archives; and makes approved changes to By-Laws and Constitution.  This position is elected to a two-year term.

Vice President (opening in Spring 2018): The Vice President serves as chair in president’s absence, and provides support and assistance to president and other members of the Executive Committee. This position will rotate to the duties of President in 2020-2022 and remain with the group as Past President in 2023.

Education Co-Chair (opening in Spring 2018): The Education Committee Co-Chair coordinates planning and implementation of Fall Education Day and Spring Conference. Responsibilities include determining topics, location, speakers, and schedule; coordinating CEU certificates; and assisting with contracts, logistics, and flow of conferences. The Education Co-Chairs are appointed strategically for a three-year term, to allow overlap of co-chair functioning.

Advocacy Chair (opening in Spring 2018): The Advocacy Chair educates institutions on the merits of utilizing and maintaining employment of professional chaplains, advocates for support of chaplains who are already hired, and provides support for individual members. Advocacy Chair is appointed to a three year position.

Committee Members are also needed for Education, Advocacy, Publicity/Marketing, and Finance.

Please consider how any of these opportunities would help broaden your experience as a chaplain. It is a chance to make a difference and be on the cutting edge in our profession. Some expenses (i.e., mileage) are paid for Executive Committee members to attend 3-4 meetings a year, if they are not reimbursed by their employer.

Notify Cynthia Vaughan by email at cynthia.vaughan@nhrmc.org as soon as possible if you are interested in any of these opportunities or if you would like to nominate a colleague. She will forward the names to Greg McClain, chair of the Nominations Committee, who will follow-up with you.
