Applications, including all required documentation, must be submitted by June 1, 2023. 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 2023 Board meeting and begin their term of service on January 1, 2024. Though Board service officially begins in 2024, to support the onboarding experience, incoming Board members will need to plan to attend the November 10-12, 2023 Board meeting as guests.
The Board meeting dates for 2024 are February 23-24, May 10-12, August 23-24, and November 15-17. Meetings are typically held over a weekend. The February and August dates are virtual 1-1/2 day meetings (Friday evening/all day Saturday. The May and November dates are in-person for 2-1/2 days (Friday & Saturday all day, 1/2 day Sunday). The May meeting will be at a location to be determined, and the November meeting will be in the Chicago-area, IL.
