Apply to join The New York City Peace Corps Association’s Board of Directors!

The New York City Peace Corps Association is excited to share details of our 2020 elections for the Board of Directors.

It’s a great opportunity to get more involved in the group’s activities and to be a leader for our community. Upon election, board members will join one of three open committees:

  • Communications Committee – Responsible for overseeing all NYCPCA communications. This committee will assure, in cooperation with the Membership Committee, that all NYCPCA members and others in the NYCPCA community are fully informed of NYCPCA programs and events through all our communication channels. This also includes promoting and growing the audience for our storytelling podcast, Peace Corps Stories: The Unofficial Podcast.
  • Programs Committee – Our largest committee, which handles the majority of our events and networking opportunities for our members, with three main areas of focus:

    Community Service – to seek opportunities and encourage NYCPCA Members to participate in local service projects in keeping with the Purpose and Mission of NYCPCA.

    Professional Development – to create professional development efforts and opportunities for NYCPCA and our membership.

    Social and Events – to plan, coordinate, and implement social events for NYCPCA, which includes trivia nights, cocktail hours and other virtual events to bring our members closer to each other.
  • Membership Committee – to help define and manage our member base, identify RPCVs in the NYC area, and develop fundraising campaigns with our membership.

Board members are expected to serve a one year term and be active in all
NYCPCA events. Elections occur at the end of each calendar year. We are looking for energetic RPCVs with fresh, fun ideas!
