Board of Directors
The Charlotte Children’s Center Board of Directors is made up of a group of 6-7 parents and community members whose main responsibility is to appoint the director of the Center and then review the director’s performance on an annual basis. The board is also responsible for providing guidance with the fiscal management and establishment of the policies of the Center.
The Board meets at the Children’s Center one evening each month. Each board member commits to a two year term, though they may choose to extend their term. Parents interested in joining the Board should speak to one of the current board members. Meet the current board of directors:
