NWVCIL Seeks Board Members

Posted: May 25, 2010

The Northern West Virginia Center for Independent Living, NWVCIL, is seeking volunteer board members to provide direction and guidance for our consumer directed, non profit disability resource center. Full board meets bi-monthly.

Currently, we have 6 vacancies that need filled with community members, local business representatives, consumers, and others who are interested in equality for all. 51% of our board positions must be held by qualified individuals with disabilities.

In addition to growing our general membership representing our vast service area, our most immediate need includes a Treasurer. NWVCIL receives federal, state, and local dollars from multiple funding sources. Accounting of these funds is provided by a contracted CPA firm, using Quick Books for Non Profits and must follow the standards outline in the OMB Circular A-122. The center is subject to an A133 compliance audit annually. The treasurer assists the management of the center in monitoring compliance with federal grants management and works with the CPA firm in presenting the financial reports to the remaining members, while providing additional over sight with fiduciary responsibilities.

We are seeking volunteers who have an interest in non profit management, providing guidance and direction as we continue to be a community based, consumer directed resource center for persons with disabilities working to ensure equality for all.

If interested, please contact Jan Derry, Executive Director at 296-6091 or jderry@nwvcil.org.
