CISV is an all-volunteer run organization at the local level. We depend on those families participating in our various programs to contribute in many ways, including serving on the board of directors. We hope that families stay involved for years to come and help positively impact the lives of others.
The board of directors is made up of President, President-Elect, Immediate Past President, Vice President of Communications, Vice President of Finance, Vice President of Programs, Secretary, Treasurer, Members at Large (3), Junior Branch Representative, and chairs of standing committees. In a case where the Immediate Past President is not also the Chapter Representative, the individual serving as Chapter Representative shall also be a member of the Board of Directors. An individual with significant CISV experience, approved by the Board of Directors, shall serve as the Chapter Representative to CISV USA.
Other important roles include Risk Manager, Local Interchange Coordinator (LIC), Local Trainer,
