CID Leadership

About the CID Executive Board

The Executive Board is comprised of seven elected officers of the Community (Chair, Chair-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, Past Chair, Vendor Relations Chair and Membership Chair). As only elected officers may vote on matters of the Division, the executive board (hereafter known as “board”) shall have the authority and responsibility to manage the Community’s property and to regulate and govern its affairs. A majority of board members in office shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at any meeting of the board. No member shall serve in the same office for more than two consecutive terms.

About the CID Advisory Board

The Chairs of Community Committees are appointed by the Division Chair, generally for a period of one year. The Community Chair may appoint Community members to additional positions as outlined in the Community’s Practices. Committee members may be appointed by the Community Chair or the Committee Chair as specified in the Community’s Practices. Those interested in serving may contact the current Chair at any time.
