The Board of Directors for the Norfolk Community Services Board (Norfolk CSB) is a Policy Advisory Board. The Board is composed of a maximum of 18 members, who 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 a member who is exiting the board, 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.
The Board of Directors meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. The meetings are being held in the 2nd floor breakroom at 7447 Central Park Business Drive, Norfolk, VA 23513. Any changes to this schedule will be posted here.
