Election of Officers and Call for Volunteers:

  • You can ask to be nominated for any of the listed positions.
  • Names of current nominees are listed on the chart. Most are current executive members who are willing to stay on.
  • However we are actively seeking new board members.
  • Some positions can be shared, as there is always plenty to do. For example, we have 2 Co-Chairs.
  • We also have an executive position called “Member at Large”. This allows people to be on the executive without a specific “portfolio” and to contribute in a variety of ways as per your interests. Some of our current board members started as Member at Large and then “specialized”.
  • Please see the CPCA organizational chart to get some ideas of how you might contribute if you are interested in becoming an executive member or non-executive volunteer.
  • If you are thinking of joining the executive/board in the future, attending some of our open executive meetings (advertised on our website) is a good way to familiarize yourself with the work of the community association.
