Board of Directors

 
The Kansas Consumer Advisory Council for Adult Mental Health Board of Directors is a working board! It is difficult to estimate an exact time commitment, but it can be considerable. Attendance at Quarterly Board meetings is required. In addition Board members are expected and encouraged to serve on other committees, make and report contacts with consumers, make presentations at CRO’s and other consumer organizations attend and help with Recovery Conference including preparation and take down. As such it is important for Board members to have or be willing to obtain leadership and communication skills. To this end all board members are required to complete the Leadership for Empowerment Training Academy within one year of being elected. Most meetings are held on week days, so availability at these times is necessary! Finally Board Members should be accessible by phone and email and able to provide their own transportation to Board Meetings and other activities. If you can make these commitments then we encourage you to download, complete and return an application below:
