Call for Board Nominations

The Northeast Kingdom Council on Aging invites nominations of candidates for its Board of Directors. The Board is responsible for the organization’s governance to ensure it remains committed to its mission through services and programs. Board members promote the Council on Aging with individuals and organizations in their communities, as well as with elected officials. The Board is increasingly playing a role in raising public and private revenue. The Council seeks civic, academic, and business leaders and aims for a Board that is broadly reflective of the Northeast Kingdom’s demographic and geographic diversity in Essex, Orleans and Caledonia counties.
