One of Lawrenceville Corporation’s Board of Directors roles and goals is to build a capable Board. LC envisions a community that is defined and strengthened by its diversity.

As per LC bylaws, qualified Board of Directors must have a vested interest in Lawrenceville, including individuals who reside in the Lawrenceville area or who own, manage, or work in a Lawrenceville business, bank, institution, nonprofit organization, or with local government. The Board shall have a balanced representation of Directors from the entire service and program area of the organization with a 33% minimum of residents. Board members are required to be members of the organization in good standing upon election.
About the Nominating Committee
The Nominating Committee’s role is to fulfill the Board’s goal of building a diverse and capable Board. It is made up of 6 Board members, as well as the organization’s Governance Committee members. It focuses on clarifying and formalizing our board recruitment, nominations, and elections process. The Committee identifies needs of the organization based on the existing skills and experience of current board members, member surveys, community demographics, organizational work plans, and the organizational mission, vision, and values. The Nominating Committee oversees recruitment, review, and recommendation of interested members to relevant committees and will recommend a slate of candidates to serve on the Board of Directors.
