Applications, including all required documentation, must be submitted by June 1, 2022. CDCESs can apply using this online application tool.
The CBDCE Professional Development Committee, made up of current and past Board members, interviews qualified CDCESs who have submitted applications. Qualified candidates will be contacted via email to complete a survey of board traits/competencies and identify a date and time for the interview. (Note: Applicants will want to add "@cbdce.org" as a safe send to their email address/contact list to ensure CBDCE email messages are received.)
The interviews typically take place in July and will be conducted using a video platform.
The individuals who are elected will be notified after the August 2022 Board meeting and begin their term of service on January 1, 2023. Though Board service officially begins in 2023, to support the onboarding experience, incoming Board members will need to plan to attend the November 11-13, 2022 Board meeting as guests.
The Board meeting dates for 2023 are February 18-19, May 19-21, August 26-27, and November 10-12. Meetings are typically 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 days long and are held over a weekend. With the exception of the November meeting, meetings are held in Arlington Heights, IL.
