Sheila Akbar, the outgoing Chair of NYC NOWC’s board of directors, has tendered her resignation at the end of June due to the fact that she is expecting her first baby this summer. We thank Sheila for her year and a half tenure on our board and her clear commitment to the cooperative movement. As a result, we need to fill her spot on an interim basis, until NYC NOWC board elections in December for more permanent roles.
We are asking you, our members, for recommendations and nominations to fill this role.
As a member of the NYC NoWC board, you will be part of an active board that is currently involved in strategic planning, governance, and oversight of NYC NOWC staff members. We would require your attendance (usually via calls or in-person) to a monthly meeting, as well as being involved with aspects of administration and strategy for our young, growing organization. It’s a rewarding role for the right person and would require a time commitment of 5 hours per month.
We will be accepting recommendations and nominations for the NYC NOWC board until next Friday, July 16th. Please let us know if you’d be interested or know someone who you think would be a great addition to our board.
