Job Description:

The Board will support the work of the Chronic Wellness Collective (CWC) and provide mission-based leadership and strategic governance. While day-to-day operations are led by the CWC's Executive Director (ED), the Board-Director relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected. Specific Board Member responsibilities include:

Leadership, governance and oversight

  • Serving on committees or task forces and taking on special assignments 
  • Representing CWC to stakeholders; acting as an ambassador for the organization 
  • Ensuring CWC’s commitment to a diverse board and staff that reflects the communities CWC serves

CWC Board Members will consider CWC a philanthropic priority and make annual gifts that reflect that priority. So that CWC can credibly solicit contributions from foundations, organizations, and individuals, CWC expects to have 100 percent of Board Members make an annual contribution that is commensurate with their capacity.
