The Member

  • This position in CCA requires time and commitment.
  • Although the general running of CCA is done via the CCA Secretariat, all problem solving are relayed to the Board via email or phone and requires their approval before executed.
  • Each member must daily answer their emails stating their opinion on various matters, in order to ensure the smooth running of the CCA Secretariat.
  • CCA Board Members meet in person 3-5 times a year for various meetings. Location varies.

Members are required to further the aims of the Association, notably by:

  • Generate new Membership
  • Use of their respective position to create contact and awareness for CCA.
  • Represent CCA to the public, at any time when necessary.

A member position is on an honorary basis and gives no right to any remuneration, so a strong company support behind the mandate, is an advantage.
