The Nominating Committee is seeking NLIHC members who wish to be considered for service on the Board of Directors.
The board is composed of 24 people. Six positions are for low income persons (defined as income of 50% of area median or less), six are for representatives of allied national organizations, six are for representatives of state housing coalitions, and up to six are unrestricted or at-large. This year, there are openings for two low income people and three representatives from national organizations.
At least 90% of the board members must be people with low incomes or who are or have been engaged directly in working with low income persons to meet their housing needs.
NLIHC strives to achieve broad diversity among its board members in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, and geography, including representatives from both urban and rural communities. We seek to have as many different states represented as possible.
Board members are elected for three year terms and can be nominated to two additional three year term. New board members will be elected at the board’s March 26, 2011 meeting.
Interested NLIHC members should sent a letter detailing their qualifications for and interest in serving on the board to NLIHC President Sheila Crowley at Sheila@nlihc.org by February 4, 2011.
