The Italian Cultural and Community Center is seeking candidates to fill five upcoming vacancies on the Board of Directors. The election will be held at the annual meeting of members on December 4, 2014. Each term lasts three years.
We welcome strategic thinkers who understand “the big picture” and who can translate ideas into actions in order to fulfill ICCC’s mission to advance, celebrate, and preserve Italian culture and heritage for everyone.
Candidates must have the following qualities: integrity, independence, confidence, corporate manners, courage, and commitment. The overarching responsibilities of Board members are governance, fundraising, and public relations. Board members do not have to be of Italian descent, but must have a passion for Italian culture
Because we are a working board, all Board members are expected to “do their share” to keep ICCC advancing.

Good standing with dues current; legal resident of US; no closer than third cousin to any other board member; pass a background check; no convictions for felony, Class A or B misdemeanor, crime of moral turpitude, or declared to be of unsound mind by order of a court.
ICCC is a multi-faceted organization that is in ascendency, growing by leaps and bounds, in scope and influence. It is more critical than ever for ICCC to have leaders capable of carrying forward our ambitious 5-year strategic plan with a vision to become the destination for all things Italian for all Houstonians.
