As a not for profit organization, EMCCC is governed by a Board of Directors. The Executive Director is selected by and reports directly to the Board of Directors. The EMCCC Board is comprised of concerned community residents including the parents of a few EMCCC children. All Board positions are voluntary. Regular Board meetings are held throughout the year. The EMCCC Board is vital and active and, like the staff, is comprised of several long term, middle length and newer members dedicated to preserving and promoting the integrity of the Center. In addition to providing oversight and advocacy, the Board actively fundraises throughout the year with events and appeals in support of the Center and its programs. Funds are used for the scholarship fund and enrichment activities. Parents are encouraged to participate in Board fundraising events including the fall Gala and are notified in advance when they are coming up.
