Community Advisory Board Member Application
Thank you for considering service on the CHIPTS Community Advisory Board (CAB). The CAB began in 2000 in order to incorporate the expertise of community-based organizations (CBOs), advocates, and health department personnel into our investigator-initiated research center work. Quarterly CAB meetings provide community input into research projects and support the integration of research findings into community practice. Please see our website for information on our current research portfolio: http://chipts.ucla.edu
Applications for membership are due on August 10th, 2012. Upon receipt, applications are discussed within the context of current CAB needs, and the Membership Committee makes the determination to select new members. Applicants are then notified and, if selected, scheduled for an orientation with CHIPTS staff. Newly selected members will be notified in early September in order to participate in the September CAB meeting. The length of term for each member is two years. No member may serve more than two consecutive terms. Please see the PDF download below for the meeting dates that new members will be required to attend in 2012-2013.
We are very happy to have you consider joining. We hope that, if selected, you will find the experience to be professionally and personally enriching. Please respond to the following questions to help us understand your potential contribution and to help us maintain diversity among our members. HIV-positive individuals are strongly encouraged to apply. Please use extra space, as needed, and include a resume or CV. Questions?
