Membership. Access. Success

CACNY‚Äôs Board of Directors are members who voluntarily serve the organization with their time and expertise to oversee the business of our nonprofit membership corporation. Working closely with CACNY's committees and staying in tuned to our members' needs, the Board is focused on carrying out the aims and mission of our organization's members.
Board members are elected to their posts by CACNY's membership. Each service term as an officer of the corporation is two years. It's renewable after the second year, should an additional term be sought.
The Board of Directors meets monthly and manages a variety of activities. These include organizing monthly networking meetings, cultivating new members, collecting dues, managing the CACNY website, overseeing CACNY working committees, and most of all, communicating with members.
