The not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) is accepting candidate nominations for two open board positions in Shelby County.
The deadline is September 17. Terms are for four years from October 2021 to September 2025.
NECAC is a 12-county area social service, community health and public housing agency that serves low-to-middle income families and individuals. The agency’s Central Administration Offices are in Bowling Green, with service centers operated in each county.
Nominations are being accepted for a Civic Interest Representative (CIR) and a Low-Income Representative (LIR).Candidates must reside in Shelby County. CIR nominees must be a member of or nominated by a local business, labor, civic, fraternal, social, educational or religious organization. LIR candidates must be nominated by a low-income resident of the county or an organization that serves the low-income, but need not be low-income themselves.
The board will hold the election Sept. 28, with installation and term of office beginning on Oct. 26. The 36-member volunteer board is a tripartite membership represented by three members from each county in the service area – one CIR, one LIR and one Public Elected Official (PEO).
Nominations must be made on authorized forms that are available from the NECAC Shelby County Service Center, 204 E. Third in Shelbyville. A biographical questionnaire provided by NECAC or a personal resume must be completed.
The board meets on the fourth Tuesday at 7 p.m. during the months of January, March, May, July, September, October and November in Bowling Green. A complimentary meal is provided and a travel reimbursement of 51 cents per mile to and from meetings is allowed. Meetings usually are completed by 9 p.m.
NECAC has an annual budget of almost $29 million, with 103 full-time and more than 85 part-time employees.
