The Community Advisory Council (CAC) is a 13-member body responsible for advising the Board, from the communities’ perspectives, about the efficacy of the Foundation’s programs, the communities’ priorities for future efforts of the Foundation, and for nominating persons to serve on the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
CAC members serve for a maximum of two three-year terms. When vacancies arise, new CAC members are selected by the Nominating Committee for the CAC (NCCAC), composed of three foundation board members, three CAC members, with the chair of the CAC serving as the non-voting chair of the NCCAC.
The CAC has a role and responsibility distinct from the Board of Directors. Community expertise is highly valued by MFH therefore, those elected to serve as CAC members are strongly encouraged to complete at least a full, three-year term before seeking appointment to the Board of Directors, if they have a desire to serve in that capacity.
The NCCAC is currently soliciting applications from individuals interested in serving on the CAC. In 2019 there will be three vacancies with two incumbents eligible to apply for a second term. Applicants must live in the Foundation’s geographic region.
If you have questions, please call Program Director and CAC Staff Lead Kathleen Holmes, at (314) 345-5572.
Applications and resumes must be received by Friday, March 1, 2019.
