Board Election 2021 - COVID Style

There is an election this year for The Child and Youth Care Board (CYCCB) board of directors.  

Strategic leadership for the Child and Youth Care Certification Board is provided by a volunteer board of directors who serve four-year terms and are elected by the body of certified practitioners.

Serving on the board is a significant opportunity to contribute to the evolution of child and youth care practice. CYCCB implements the highest standards in the field and brings practitioner leadership to raise standards of practice, promote certification, and increase recognition of our contribution to the world.

We value a diverse board and seek practitioners from a wide variety of backgrounds including all practice settings, direct practitioners, managers, administrators, educators, trainers, and researchers.

Board member requirements

Although it is desirable that candidates be certified with CYCCB at the Entry, Associate, or Professional level and current in their renewal, this is not a requirement. The board of directors is expected to be present at a monthly teleconference and make a contribution to board tasks, discussions, and decisions. Financial support to fund occasional travel is helpful.   In-person meetings are occasionally held. Board members are expected to cover their own travel expenses.  It is helpful to have consent from the board member’s employing organization so that board activities, required meetings, and expenses are supported. 

Nomination process

Practitioners who are certified at the Entry, Associate or Professional levels are invited to nominate candidates to serve on the board of directors. The nominees who receive the most votes from certified practitioners will be elected. Some current board members will be seeking re-election.

To make a nomination, send this form as an attachment to the following email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Nominations will be posted on the polling website. Each currently certified practitioner will be notified by email when the polling site is available and will be able to vote. Election results will be announced in September. Nominations for this election cycle will be accepted until the end of July.
