CBCIA Governance 

The CBCIA Board of Directors is made up of the five association officers and the four standing committee chairs. The offices are president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, and at-large director. The four standing committees are facilities, security, erosion control, and activities.


Membership meetings are held at least four times a year, typically in February, May, August, and December. Members are notified of upcoming meetings either by email or by postal mail at their county address of record.  Members who want to switch from mailed to emailed notifications should send their name/address/email to secretary@cbcia.org.


The officers are elected by the membership biannually at the May membership meeting. The committee chairs are appointed by the president and approved by the membership.  New board members terms are effective July 1. The president cannot serve more than two consecutive two-year terms. No term limits are imposed for other board members.


The board presents the next year’s proposed budget for ratification at the December membership meeting.  The budget year runs from July 1 to June 30.


Membership votes, such as votes for board members and the budget, require that a quorum of 20 CBCIA members be present.  You may be included in the quorum when you cannot attend the meeting by filling out the Proxy Voting Form.
