Seeking nominations for new Board, Coalition volunteers

The Healthy Start Coalition is seeking nominations for the Board of Directors and Coalition membership. Potential volunteers should have an interest in maternal and child health.

Please submit Nomination Forms to Coalition Executive Director Jennifer Gornto by January 5, 2015.

Board member responsibilities include attending all board and committee meetings and functions, such as special events, and being informed about the organization’s mission, services, policies and programs. The Board meets on the third Thursday of the month on a monthly basis, except when there are Coalition meetings. The full Coalition membership meets quarterly (January, April, June and October).

The Board and Coalition ensure organizational planning, goal setting and statutory mandates; manage the organization’s resources; promote the organization’s image; and assess and measure organizational performance, among other responsibilities.
