Join the Board

CCCI is ran by a purely volunteer board.  MEET OUR BOARD

Board members are elected or re-elected at the Childhood Cancer Connection annual meeting in November. Renewable two-year terms run from January 1 through December 31. During that time, board members are asked to:.

  • Attend scheduled monthly board meetings
  • Volunteer for fundraising & community activities
  • Participate on at least two standing committees

Learn how to join or board.


Each committee focuses on a key area of activity, which divides the board's work into more manageable tasks. Each special committee is made up of individual members of the board who work directly with volunteers (non board members) and sponsors. Committees will review options and committee chairs will regularly present their findings and recommendations to the board as a whole during the general board meeting.
