The Board Development Committee is charged with recruiting community members dedicated to CJI's mission to serve on the Board of Directors. In accordance with CJI's bylaws, the majority of the board members cannot be involved in the full-time practice of law or be full-time sitting judges. Leaders from the legal, business, education, and philanthropic communities have served on the CJI board.
The Board Development Committee ensures that the board members, once elected, remain active in the running of the organziation and understand the mission of the organziation. Each board member is expected to have direct involvement in at least one of CJI's projects or the governance of the organziation.
Questions about the board should be directed to the development chair, Rod Yokooji.
