Arlington Neighborhood Village (ANV) is a volunteer-driven charitable 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping older Arlington residents continue living in their own homes – safely, independently, and with an enhanced quality of life. A village is a network of neighbors helping neighbors by providing support services, resources, and social and educational programs. ANV membership is available to residents of Arlington County who are 55 years of age or older; discounted memberships are provided for those who may be unable to pay the membership fee.
The Board meets six times a year, holds planning sessions as agreed, and serves without compensation. Directors generally serve three-year terms and are eligible for one additional three-year term. General Board responsibilities include:
1. Provide leadership, vision, and strategic priorities for the organization.
2. Provide guidance and direction to the Executive Director who works to implement ANV’s plans and programs.
3. Represent and promote ANV in the community, including outreach to build a multicultural organization.
4. Raise funds and ensure adequate resources.
5. Protect assets and provide financial oversight.
6. Monitor progress and strengthen ANV programs.
7. Ensure legal and ethical integrity.
The ideal candidate(s) will have professional leadership experience in business, the health care field, government, law, or the nonprofit sector and experience in one or more of the following areas: financial oversight, volunteer and member recruitment, fundraising and development, and services to aging adults in the community. We especially seek Board candidates from communities of color to help us achieve our mission.
Prior experience/membership on an active Board is helpful. If eligible for ANV membership, Directors are expected to join and maintain ANV membership during their tenure. If not eligible for membership, Directors are encouraged to make annual financial contributions similar to the cost of membership.
Directors must have a passion for our mission of providing seniors the option of aging in place, and be willing to commit their time, talents and resources to ensuring the success of the organization. Arlington residence is not required. Adults of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Arlington Neighborhood Village prohibits discrimination and harassment of any type without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
Interested candidates should email a cover letter and resume to Michela Downey, Nominations Committee Secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org . Candidates are encouraged to apply by November 1, 2022.
