Board Member Applications Due

  • Saturday, October 31, 2020, 5:00 PM - 5:00 PM

CCE-Tompkins is actively recruiting community members with diverse backgrounds and interests to serve as At-Large members of its Board of Directors. Board members guide and shape the direction of the organization’s many programs, oversee its finances and operations, select and evaluate the performance of its director, and other duties that help to ensure CCE-Tompkins effectively meets the current needs of Tompkins County residents.

Founded in 1913, CCE-Tompkins provides free or low-cost classes, workshops, services and information based on current research from Cornell and other Land Grant universities across the nation. Its programs are grassroots driven and created in response to community identified needs, on topics that include home gardening, food and nutrition, parenting skills, 4-H youth clubs and activities, agriculture, environmental issues, community development, and more. Visit for more on the organization’s history and work.

New board members would serve a 3-year term from January 2021 through December 2024, with an option to continue for a second term. The full Board of Directors meets on the first Thursday of each month from 5:00–7:00pm; Board Standing Committees meet once a month for two hours, at a time determined by the members. There is no financial commitment required to serve.
