The CalConnect Board of Directors

As of July 2017


At this time, CalConnect has five elected directors. All of our elected directors also hold officer positions of the corporation. The Chair of TC CHAIRS and the Interoperability Test Manager attend Board calls as Ex Officio non-voting members.


The Board holds quarterly Board Meetings in January, April, July, and October, almost always by conference call. The Board also has a brief bi-weekly conference call for strategic planning and current events update; the Chair of TC CHAIRS (the Technical Committee coordination group) and the Interperability Test Event Manager attend these calls occasionally to update the Board on status and current events.  The Board has also held strategic planning retreats twice, in 2005 and 2012, and anticipates doing so every few years in the future.
