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 sender to their email address/contact list to ensure CBDCE email messages are received.)
The interviews typically take place in July 2021 and will be conducted using a video platform.
The Professional Development Committee then prepares a slate of candidates to present to the Board for election.
Directors will be notified after the August 2021 Board meeting of their election and begin their term of service on January 1, 2022. Though Board service officially begins in 2022, to support the onboarding experience, incoming Board members will attend the November 5-6, 2021 Board meeting as guests.
The Board meeting dates for 2022 are February 19-20, May 20-22, August 27-28, and November 12-13. Meetings are typically 1-1/2 days and are held over a weekend. With the exception of the May meeting, meetings are held in Arlington Heights, IL.
