COR is led by a group of passionate volunteers who meet regularly to plan events, discuss volunteer opportunities, and ensure COR stays focused on its mission. COR maintains no paid staff – all of its leaders volunteer their time and talents.
COR’s Executive Team sets the organization’s strategic goals for the year and guides the work of the larger Board of Directors. A new Chairperson leads COR each year, supported by the Immediate Past Chair, two Vice Chairs, a Secretary, and Finance Chair. The Vice Chair of Strategic Initiatives works with the Table for Six, Time for Art, and Talent Retention Action Teams. The Vice Chair of Operations works with the Membership, Volunteer, and Development Action Teams. COR’s Secretary administers meeting agendas and minutes, and the Finance Chair manages the organization’s budget. Immediate Past Chairs provide continuity within COR’s leadership from year to year and serve as liaisons to the Wisdom Council.
Action Team Leads
Action Team Leads serve as liaisons between their respective teams and COR’s Board of Directors. They help Action Teams set goals for their events and initiatives and ensure teammates have what they need to successfully execute programs.
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors includes the Executive Team, Action Team Leads, and Vice Action Team Leads. This group meets monthly to review recent accomplishments and discuss upcoming programs. Directors serve as ambassadors at Activate and Connect events and as mentors for new COR members and action team participants. They also serve as champions for growth and progress in the Columbia region.
COR’s Wisdom Council is comprised of key community partners who serve as advisors to the Executive Team. Wisdom Council provides important guidance to the current Executive Team and ensures the organization’s continuity from year to year.
