Non-profit agency seeks to fill open board seat
Submitted By Robin Michel
Officials from Child, Family & Community Services, Inc. (CFCS), are looking for applicants to serve on the agency?s Board of Directors. The Union City-based non-profit agency promotes school readiness for low-income children younger than 5 through education, health, nutrition, family involvement and other services.
?We are looking for members who will join the Board in supporting the agency?s mission: Providing a foundation for success for young children and their families,? said CFCS Interim Board President Warren Pulley.
The Head Start Act mandates that the agency?s board is comprised of board members who have expertise in Legal/Federal Law, Child Development/Head Start, and Fiscal/Budget. Applicants with other skills and expertise are also encouraged to apply. Members must be prepared to take an active role in ensuring the agency?s legal and ethical integrity, and maintaining accountability, as well as participate in advocacy and fundraising efforts. The board does not manage the day-to-day operations.
Anyone who is interested in applying, or wants more information is asked to call Emani? Lewis at (510) 284-4222, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
