The Board is responsible for all polices and stewardship of the vision. They have full fiduciary responsibility including fiscal oversight, budget approval and fundraising for the organization. The Board is made up of volunteers who have been selected and elected to serve a term of office with the possibility of re-election. They carry the “duty of care” which is the responsibility to ensure that the organization is run ethically in all areas. They must perform “due diligence” in considering strategic planning and in making other decisions. Ultimately, the Board is legally responsible for meeting all laws and standards to maintain its nonprofit status. They provide invaluable guidance and support to the administration and help us plan for the future.
I’ve always enjoyed helping other people. Joining a board to give back just seemed like the right thing to do. This decision has proven more rewarding than I ever could have imagined. When I get to meet the people we serve, it makes it all worthwhile. The success of Community Catalysts California is only because of the hard working men and women that come to work every day. I’m constantly humbled when I witness the passion that the employees bring to better this organization.
I joined the Board when I was referred by a current Board Member. I reviewed CCC’s accomplishments and felt that my background in financial investments and clinical psychology could benefit this organization. It would also allow me to learn about the process and benefits of being part of a dynamic non-profit. The benefits this organization has brought to me would to be part of a team with unending dedication to their clients, to the good of their communities they serve and caring for humanity. Mr. Jenkins and his executive team have created an environment of positive, focused leadership. They have selected each of the Board Members with a purpose of expertise, but in my opinion all members share the same focus to help CCC to the best of their ability and to have fun providing that service to them. Thank you CCC!
From the US Navy’s Submarine Service to the alumni board at UCSD’s Rady School of Management, I have been drawn to service most of my adult life. I was actively looking to contribute to an organization that was making a significant impact in the lives of military veterans when I discovered Community Catalysts of California through a board member. This organization’s powerful record of improving the lives of its constituents through service provision and advocacy has been established over many years of dedicated service by its leadership and employees. I feel honored at the opportunity to sustain this work through my participation on the Board.
I joined the Board after I was invited by a dear friend to consider participation. As a parent of a son with disabilities, I thought this was a great opportunity to give back in an area I care deeply about. There is no higher calling than those who provide support for the disabled and their families as well as veterans. I am grateful for each and every dedicated member of the Community Catalysts organization. It’s a beautiful thing when vision and commitment changes the lives of thousands, through opportunities.
I think that many people believe that this would be a discouraging position, it’s just the opposite! Being part of the leadership team, strategically planning services, advocacy and support for our Veterans and individuals with disabilities is being part of the SOLUTION! I consider it a privilege to play such a small part at Community Catalysts California, who not only strengthen our communities through their selfless work with individuals with disabilities but also empowers our Military Veterans through their Veterans Community Services division to gain increased independence. What could be better?
The leadership staff are essential in providing daily direction and oversight to operations as well as other administrative support services to our company. Community Catalysts California maintains effective organizational leadership that helps prioritize objectives for subordinates and provides guidance toward achieving the overall corporate vision.
