YRMC seeks board candidates
If you have a desire to serve your community, an interest in health care and strong interpersonal and management skills, consider becoming a candidate for the Yuma Regional Medical Center Board of Directors.
The all-volunteer board's role is to set policy.
Applications are being accepted until Oct. 15 for four open board positions. Terms are four years; members can serve up to three consecutive terms. Board members must be able to commit to 10 to 25 hours a month, which includes board and committee meetings, in-town and out-of-town educational seminars and preparation time.
An independent advisory committee will review applications and conduct reference checks, then refer candidates to the board's Governance Committee. The Governance Committee interviews each of the candidates and makes a recommendation to the board of directors, which makes the final selection of new trustees.
To request an application packet, call Megan Castillo, board coordinator, at 336-7000.
The workshop, Profit Mastery: Get Control of Your Business, is being offered by the Arizona Western College Small Business Development Center.
The hands-on workshop will include such topics as overcoming common organizational and business problems, understanding your financial situation, evaluating cost patterns, avoiding cash crunches and planning for transition.
