At the annual meeting of CMHACY in May of 2018, a decision was made to merge the CMHACY organization with a recently formed non-profit affiliate of CMHACY, created for the purpose of being able to collect tax-deductible donations. At this same meeting, the “membership” designation of CMHACY was also determined to be less effective when managing the efforts of the merged corporations.

To ensure an open and transparent process of electing Directors of the CMHACY Board, the CMHACY Bylaws were rewritten to describe the protocols to be followed on an annual basis.

Below presents more detailed information for persons who are interested in serving CMHACY as either a Director or a Friend of the Board.
