Board of Directors

Board of Directors

CMDE is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Board meets 10 times a year to set policy, review financial and programmatic matters, and ensure that CMDE is fulfilling its mission to the community. Board members advocate for CMDE, and help support the organization through donations of their own “talent, time, and treasure”. Current members have a wide range of skills and experience in areas such as corporate management, law, the arts, education, disability issues, the public sector, and other fields. If you would like to be considered as a candidate to serve CMDE in a leadership role, please contact the office and ask to be put in touch with a current Board Member.
