Organization

CSC is governed by a volunteer board of directors, which is the policy-making and governing arm of CSC. The functions of the board are to articulate and implement the mission and values of CSC, to set policy, plan for the future, establish and supervise an operating budget, ensure the fiscal health of CSC, and to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of CSC.

Much of the work of the College is organized by committees. The committees of the College where volunteers are needed include:

  • Membership Committee – Prepares and sends annual membership renewal forms; maintains accurate membership lists and reviews them with UCR staff for mailing purposes; and, conducts member polls and analyses
  • Marketing Committee – Creates and implements a marketing strategy; works with Curriculum and Special Events on publicizing courses and events, printing catalogs, and creating the newsletter part of the catalog; processes mailings of catalogs, newsletters and special notices to the membership and interest groups; and, produces informational pieces such as brochures, radio and T.V. spots to promote the name and mission of CSC.
  • Events Committee – Plans, organizes, and produces special events (such as trips, lectures, walks, social events and other one-time educational events) that will enrich CSC member experience.
  • Curriculum Committee – Recruits instructors and approves courses; finds course venues and maintain current site descriptions;  schedules instructors, number of sessions, day, time, and venue for each class; prepares the course catalog; coordinates with Marketing to assure that classes are advertised; reviews course evaluations and makes or recommends improvements; and, recruits, trains, and supports course assistants.
