welcome aboard

Thank you for your interest in becoming a board member with Habitat Young Professionals (HYP) Charlotte! HYP Charlotte’s mission is to make affordable housing a matter of conscience and encourage a spirit of service in our community by engaging young professionals to advocate, volunteer and give within their means.

The HYP Charlotte Board is a working board that is made up of 14 members. As a working board, our board members are actively involved in running networking events, fundraisers and volunteer days. Read on for Board roles, expectations and more!

general board expectations

HYP Board Members will:

  • Maintain HYP Charlotte membership (Give what you can; $15 per month OR $150 per year)
  • Board members are also expected to contribute $250 annually outside of their board membership contribution via the “Give or Get” model. This means allowing more individuals or corporations to give directly to the organization or introduce donors to HYPC that give directly as a result of the board member’s efforts.
  • Attend the Board member orientation virtual retreat
  • Attend at least 9 Board Meetings per year (12 total; meetings are monthly)
  • Attend at least 6 HYP events per year (these can be Third Thursday Social, Saturday Builds, or other events held throughout the year)

timeline
