Apply to join The New York City Peace Corps Association’s Board of Directors!
We are expanding our team! The New York City Peace Corps Association (NYC-PCA) is very excited to announce our first official Board election, to be held at the end of the year!
The NYC-PCA is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and elections will be held once a year, with service beginning in January. Upon election, board members will join one of three open committees:
- Communications Committee – to include a Communications Chair responsible for overseeing all NYC-PCA communications. This committee will assure, in cooperation with the Membership Committee, that all NYC-PCA Members and others in the NYC-PCA community are fully informed of NYC-PCA programs and events through all our communication channels. This also includes promoting and expanding our Podcast, which is recorded during our annual live storytelling show.
- Programs Committee – Our largest committee, which handles the majority of our events and networking opportunities for our members, with three main areas:
Community Service – to seek opportunities and encourage NYC-PCA Members to participate in local service projects in keeping with the Purpose and Mission of NYC-PCA.
Professional Development – to create professional development efforts and opportunities for NYC-PCA and our membership.
Social and Events– to plan, coordinate, and implement social events for NYC-PCA, which includes our monthly networking happy hours, brunches, annual Story Slam and RPCV Art Show.
- Membership Committee – to help define and manage our member base, identify RPCVs in the NYC area, and develop different fundraising opportunities.
Board members are expected to serve a one year term and be active in all
NYC-PCA events. Elections occur at the end of each calendar year. We are looking for energetic RPCVs with fresh, fun ideas!
