Board of Directors

Introduction

The Board of Directors for the Norfolk Community Services Board (Norfolk CSB) is an Administrative Policy Board. As such, the Board of Directors is responsible for the review and evaluation of public and private community mental health, intellectual disability, and substance abuse services and facilities that receive funds from the Norfolk CSB, as well as advising City Council as to its findings.

BoD Puzzle PictureThe focus of the Norfolk CSB Board, beginning 2013 and beyond, is a full review of programs and services, assessing the need of the community, and recommending program priorities. Norfolk CSB members meet monthly to set policy and direction of Board activities.

The Board is composed of a maximum of 18 members. Members must be residents of the City of Norfolk and are appointed by, and responsible to, the Norfolk City Council. The Board is representative of the community. One-third of the Board must be consumers or family members of consumers of Mental Health (MH), Substance abuse (SA), and/or Intellectual Disabilities (ID) services.

Board members are appointed to serve a three-year term, and may be reappointed to consecutive second and third terms, with each term consisting of three years. After completion of three terms, an individual may be re-elected again following a 12-month wait-period. If an individual is initially appointed to the Board to fill an unexpired term from an exiting member, once that initial term ends, the replacing member may serve his/her three terms.

The officers of the Board are the Chair and Vice-Chair. Elected by the Board members, officers serve in their office for one year, and may be re-elected yearly until the completion of their final term.

Neither the Officers nor Members are compensated for their services.
