SourcePoint seeks Board nominees


The Board of Directors of SourcePoint, formerly known as the Council for Older Adults, is seeking interested candidates to serve on the organization’s governing board for terms beginning in 2016. This local nonprofit organization provides professional expertise, services, and programs for Delaware County adults who want to thrive after 55. SourcePoint provides community support with in-home care services, resources for family caregivers, and an enrichment center for adults age 55 and older to focus on health and wellness, education, creativity and recreation.

SourcePoint’s volunteer board of directors is responsible for planning, policy development, resource development, financial oversight, evaluating the performance of the executive director, and ensuring that the organization is addressing its mission of service to the older population of Delaware County. There is an expectation that board members will participate in the fundraising activities of the organization. The board meets no less than ten times annually, and board members are expected to actively participate on at least one board committee and volunteer at various special events. The board typically meets at noon on the last Wednesday of each month.

The board is seeking a diverse mix of community members and adults of any age are encouraged to apply. Those interested in serving and providing board leadership for a dynamic nonprofit organization which serves a rapidly-growing local older population should complete an application, available online at < www.MySourcePoint.org > or by calling (740) 363-6677. The application deadline is Friday, July 24, 2015.
