Since our founding in 1982, White Plains Children’s Center has been guided by a Board of Directors, comprised of professionals from Cary, Raleigh and the surrounding communities. Volunteers, both men and women, come willingly to give their time, talents and enthusiasm to ensure WPCC is fiscally sound and that it maintains the highest standards in the industry.
The board is lead by the chairperson, selected by the Board to serve a 1 year term. Multiple consecutive terms are permitted. The board is organized by committees: Finance, Policy & Procedeures, Fundraising, Nominations, and Community Awareness/IT. Committees meet independently as needed. The WPCC Parent Teacher Association and the White Plains United Methodist Church also have a designated representative on the Board.
Board Members attend a two-hour meeting every other month of the calendar year starting in July. The meetings are held in the early evening of the 3rd Monday of the month, with the exception of January which falls on Martin Luther King, Jr Holiday. The meetings are hosted by the board chairperson who follows Robert’s Rules of Order while conducting the meetings. The agenda typically includes old business, new business and committee reports. Board Meetings are open to the public. However, when sensitive personnel or similar topics are to be discussed, the board will convene a “closed” meeting. Minutes of the meetings are documented and available for review. Requests to address the board may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WPCC fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. Board membership terms begin on July 1. Budgets and other records are available for public inspection.
