Board Members

Board Member Application  

The Erie County CASA Program is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees that is comprised of business and civic leaders throughout Erie County who lend their expertise in the fields of public relations, marketing, human resources, litigation and accounting.

Board members are elected to be strongly committed to the mission of the Erie County CASA Program; to attend regularly scheduled board and committee meetings; to familiarize themselves with the program goals and organizational structure; and to participate in all fundraising activities.

Each board member will be expected to serve as a liaison between the Erie County CASA Program and the community, stakeholders and appropriate constituencies of the organization by promoting and stimulating community interest in the program's community outreach and fundraising activities.

Board members are elected to a three year term with the option of renewing membership for a second term. New members are elected to the board throughout the calendar year. Meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month except holidays for which the agency is closed. Committee meetings are scheduled as needed.

Prospective board members need to submit a resume and a completed CASA Board Application. After submitting these documents, an interview is held with the CASA Executive Director and a Board Nominating Committee member. After all the required background checks are conducted, the Board Nominating Committee member will then share the recommendations with the full Board of Trustees prior to voting on the new trustee membership.
