Outline of Representative Board Member

CRN is looking to add a few committed, well-connected, board members. CRN is a growing organization, positively affecting the lives of metro Atlanta's homeless, abused, and abandoned children. CRN works with over 2,200 kids at any one time, in 129 shelters and group homes in 19 counties around metro Atlanta. CRN has a board that is down-to-earth, hard-working, serious, and still manages to have fun. If someone is looking to make a difference in the lives of homeless children, think about CRN.

Board Member's Desired Skills and Attributes

Our ideal board member would be:

Dedicated: Be enthusiastic about helping the children and mothers we serve. Take an interest in our programs and contribute to their growth and improvement.

Financial Responsibility: Board Members are responsible for the financial health of CRN. Each will provide a minimum monetary support of $5,000 and/or in-kind contributions through time or donations or a combination thereof. This will include a minimum personal contribution of $1,000 .

Articulate: Board Members should be well spoken, as they are CRN's ambassadors to the community. Board Members should be able to speak intelligently and knowledgeably about CRN and its role in the community.

Hard working: Board Members should be willing and able to spend at least 4 hours per month working on a CRN committee or talking to business and community leaders soliciting volunteers, financial support, or in-kind goods and services.

Compassionate: Board Members should understand as well as possible the children and mothers we serve. Empathy for CRN clients, their hardships and struggles will make Members better spokespeople as they tell CRN's story.

Available: Board Members should be able to attend the majority of Board Meetings either in person or through conference calls. Members should be able to communicate as needed with the Board or any committees the Member serves on.

Character: Board Members should be honest, open about CRN business, tolerant of diverse views, a team player, community-minded, and possess a sense of humor.

We are an organization that is small enough that the right person could make a real difference. Our website is www.childrn.org. Please e-mail or call jim cox at 770 649-7117.
