HOW YOU CAN BE PART OF THIS EXCITING VISION!
We are looking for community members who are passionate about the quality of life offered in Vacaville and who believe parks and recreation are of vital importance to our community. By becoming a board member, volunteer, friend or supporter, you can be a part of a foundation that is committed to building a stronger community through conserving and improving our parks and facilities for current and future generations to enjoy.
Board members must be willing to serve a three-year term, give 5-10 hours of time per month, be committed to the Vacaville Recreation Foundation vision, and have expertise that is used as a resource to the foundation. As individuals, board members need to "either have affluence or influence" and be willing to use personal and professional connections for fundraising purposed to benefit the foundation.
Ex-Officio members provide input and give feedback to the board, and they typically have an area of expertise needed by the foundation to meet its objectives, such as funding facility improvements. While their input and feedback is critical to the functioning of the board, ex-officio members do not vote at the board meetings and are not official board members. They may participate in subcommittees and may become board members when a position is vacated. Ex-Officio members will receive minutes and notices related to the foundation and are required to attend one meeting per quarter to be considered in good standing.
COMMITTEE CHAIR OR MEMBER
Committee chairs or members meet monthly to conduct business related to their assigned committee. Committee chairs or members are not expected to attend board meetings, except during their project. They are required to seek volunteers for assistance with their project. They typically have expertise as defined by the committees:
Committee chairs or members provide information and feedback to the board via monthly reports.
Volunteers are needed to assist in various events and activities related to the foundation. Volunteers will attend meetings on an as-needed basis and will be notified by committee chairs or members.
