Voting Member at Large

Are you interested in a seat on the CYPT Steering Committee?

As you will recall, the evolution of the CYPT Charter included the addition of 2 Voting Member-at-Large (VMAL) seats to participate at the CYPT Steering Committee. Jo Ann McComb (Kinbridge) currently holds one seat, with a term from Fall 2021 to Fall 2023. With Rania Lawendy’s term coming to a close, we’re excited to open the recruitment process for this seat with a term from January 2023 to December 2024. (Our gratitude and thanks go to Rania for her time and efforts the past two years!)


As noted in the Charter, the Voting Member At Large representative intentionally brings into the conversation the vantage point of a Voting Member Organization, to assist with strategic planning at the Steering Committee.



How to know if this opportunity is right for you:

  • You are a Voting Member of a Voting Member organization with CYPT
  • You are passionate about the vision and mission of the CYPT
  • You are interested in being part of the strategic direction setting for the collaborative
  • You can commit to a 2-year term as the Voting Member at Large



In addition to the above criteria, the Steering Committee is hopeful once again that a candidate will come forward with experience in equity work. This might be through lived experience, or through working with diverse populations. We are committed to, and highly value, greater diversity amongst the leadership of the CYPT. Applicants who bring strength and knowledge regarding diversity and equity, are particularly encouraged to apply.



If interested, please complete the application linked here by 12pm on December 6, 2022. The applications will be reviewed by Steering Committee and folks will be notified in December.
