The Cara Program Tech Advisory Board overview

  1. 1. The Cara Program Technology Advisory Board Overview About The Cara Program: The Cara Program prepares and inspires motivated individuals to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty, transform their lives, strengthen our communities, and forge paths to real and lasting success. The Cara Program has evolved as not only a best-in-class job training and placement provider for individuals affected by homelessness and poverty, but also a vehicle for true life transformation. Visit our website at Purpose: The core purpose of the Technology Advisory Board is: To provide The Cara Program with advice and insight on long term and strategic technology projects and decisions to meet the mission. To identify and connect The Cara Program with the resources, contacts and opportunities to assist with technology. Commitment: The Advisory Board will meet quarterly at The Cara Program (237 S. Desplaines, Chicago, IL 60661). These meetings will typically be on a Friday morning for about 2 hours. Members will serve on the Advisory Board for 1 year but may renew their term. In addition we would like each Advisory Board member to participate in at least 1 technology project. The involvement in the project could range from reviewing an RFP, documentation or plans to on-site visits for infrastructure assistance, vendor evaluations or assessments. We hope to leverage your expertise and experience in a way that allows you to contribute in a very direct way while being flexible to your schedule. Structure: Ideally the Advisory Board will have 8-10 members with a Chairman plus the Manager of Technology and the CFO from The Cara Program. We may invite other people to attend based on the type of project we are focused on to bring any needed specialized expertise or experience.
