Seeking Board of Directors Candidates
for 2023 Elections

The CRA Board Development Committee is seeking recommendations for CRA Board nominees for the 2023-2026 board positions. In order to represent the diverse views and regional character of the membership, the committee has identified the following areas of special interest for the upcoming board election cycle:

  • business & private sector representatives (particularly those located in NC),
  • school/university representatives (particularly those located in NC),
  • non-profit representatives,
  • members with past experience and interest in serving as a treasurer/financial management, secretary, or board development.

These are not prerequisites and members without these qualifications are equally encouraged to apply.


CRA board members provide leadership to fulfill the CRA’s mission and goals. If you are currently a CRA member in good standing, you have a good work ethic, industry experience, you have the time to conduct board business and the ability to travel North and South Carolina for meetings, you may be the perfect candidate.

  • Annual Conference Committee
  • Board Development Committee
