Valley Contractors Exchange Board of Directors Application
The volunteer leadership of the VCE provides fiscally responsible strategic direction for programs and services for our members. Term of service is 3 years. Meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of each month.
VCE bylaws require Directors to have been members of the VCE for one year at time of election. Directors must be owners or key employees of the company. Board membership is divided as closely as possible between General Contractors/Sub Contractors, Supplier and Professionals. We try to match the geographic location of Board companies to the geographic location of the membership. The VCE covers the counties of Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Plumas, Sutter and Yuba.
For the current term, the openings are for Suppliers. Term runs January 2020 through December 2022.
To ensure a quality Board, the VCE looks for dedicated people who are able to be active and work for the benefit of the entire membership. Please consider the Board Member Responsibilities when making your decision to apply to serve on the Board of Directors.
