The CCA Board of Directors Vacancy Committee is soliciting nominations for open board positions. Vacancies occur on the Board most often when a member leaves the school or is unable to continue to serve due to personal or professional reasons.

A vacancy is different than an open election. CCA Board members serve three-year terms. A vacancy is tied to the exiting board member’s term length. The new board member will serve out the remainder of the vacating member’s term. Currently, one vacancy position is for one year of service remaining (through June 2021) and the other is for three years of service remaining (through June 2023). 

If you are interested, please click here to complete the Nomination Form.  

You are also welcome to click here to submit questions to the Vacancy Committee. Click here to download the Board Frequently Asked Questions document. The Timeline for the Vacancy Committee Process is as follows: 

  • September 14, 2020: Call for Nominations
  • September 28, 2020 at 5:00 pm: Nominations Due
  • Vacancy Committee Review Process Begins
