Our leadership model is based around the empowerment of community members. As an organization, CCLT is run by a board of directors elected by the land trust membership at the annual meeting. One third of our board of directors is reserved for homeowners. All homeowners are members of the corporation and come directly from the disadvantaged communities most impacted by issues of gentrification and poverty.
Our goal is to promote a board composition of 1/3 Lessee Representatives, 1/3 General Representatives and 1/3 Public Representatives in order to strive for a balance of expertise within the board.
Currently, we are looking for Public Representatives, people from other organizations or non-profits, who can bring their knowledge and skills to our board. Examples include professionals in banking, accounting, non-profit management, realty, and law to name a few. Send us a quick message below if you are interested.
