California Coalition on Workers' Compensation

About

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is responsible for managing the affairs of the organization, including setting policies and directing CCWC staff.

The Board of Directors is typically comprised of 25 members, who serve a two-year term. Directors are eligible for re-election to the Board at the Board of Directors meeting closest to the expiration of that two-year term. 

The Board meets face-to-face on a quarterly basis, with the July meeting taking place during the CCWC Annual Conference.
