GCADV Board Opening Announcement


The Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence (GCADV) is a nonprofit corporation with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status working to eliminate domestic violence, improve services for current survivors, and create a culture that says to survivors that they are not alone. GCADV is adding to its Board of Directors, through a deliberate recruitment process focused on specific skills, backgrounds and geographic locations, to support the continued growth and development of the organization. GCADV is recruiting board members with skills in the areas of fundraising, event planning, and general development. Diversity is welcomed, including from faith-based environments. Representation from throughout the state of Georgia, especially from major employers and businesses, is especially desirable. GCADV board members are expected to attend five board meetings per year, serve actively on one committee of the organization, make a personal financial contribution commensurate with means, advocate and attend at least one legislative meeting annually, and make at least three contacts annually to assist the organization in acquiring resources to support the mission. GCADV board members serve a two-year term of service and are eligible for additional two year terms of service. We welcome the opportunity to talk with candidates who are skilled in fundraising and/or event planning, but may be unable to commit to the expectations of Board service at this time. GCADV engages the energy and passion of community members to enhance the work of our committees and Task Forces and encourages candidates to work with us at this level to learn more about the agency and our mission.

MISSION: Collaborate. Advocate. Educate. Empower. GCADV is a collective of domestic violence victim service providers, allied organizations and aligned agencies, partnered with supportive individuals committed to ending domestic violence in Georgia. The organization addresses the root causes of domestic violence through public policy efforts, training, advocacy, and core programming to cultivate and sustain broad support and advance best practices in prevention and intervention services throughout the state.
