Vice President - 1 position
The Vice President is actively involved in all aspects of the Board of Directors, Executive Committee and operational activities. The Vice President serves as chair of the Professional Development Committee. In the event of the office of President becomes vacant, the Vice President will perform all duties of that position. The candidate for Vice President should expect to serve a 3-year term: 1 year as Vice President; 1 year as President; and 1 year as Immediate Past President.
Director at Large - 3 positions
A Director at Large serves as an advocate for all members and represents the collective voice of funeral service practitioners. A Director is responsible for maintaining frequent communication with members from around the state to gain a thorough knowledge and understanding of their needs and interests. This knowledge is applied to formulate and establish policies and programs to ensure the organization’s long-term financial stability and integrity. A candidate for Director at Large should expect to serve a 2-year term.
The CFDA Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring that the organization fulfills its mission by doing quality work. Directors recognize that in order to foster the organization’s continued viability and growth, diversification of income sources is essential and they pledge to personally contribute needed resources and talents toward this end. As a nominee or current director to the CFDA Board, you must be willing to make every effort to fulfill these responsibilities.
Members of the Board of Directors are elected for two-year terms by a quorum of voting members at the annual meeting. Members may be re-elected according to the bylaws.
