New members needed for MVF committees

Are you looking to get involved in your community? Do you have a few hours every few months to help keep Montgomery Village moving forward? Then consider applying for appointment to one of three MVF committees currently in need of new members. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all meetings are currently conducted via audio/videoconference.

Investment Committee
Following a change to the Investment Committee Guidelines approved by the Montgomery Village Foundation (MVF) Board of Directors at their July 23 meeting, an additional volunteer community member is being sought. The Board voted to add two additional members to the committee, one Board member and one community member, bringing the total membership to seven.

This important ad-hoc committee addresses and advises the Board on matters specifically related to MVF’s investment activities. The committee also makes recommendations to the Board on investment strategy and policy and approves investment transactions that are in line with the policy. The committee works with MVF’s Investment Advisors.

The committee meets quarterly on Mondays, at 7 p.m.

Applicants should have a recent background, education or professional experience that includes expertise in investment management/banking. Certified Financial Advisors, Investment Advisors and Chief Financial Officers are encouraged to apply.

Election Committee
Recently, a long-time volunteer on this committee stepped down from their position. To fill that position, we are seeking at least one community volunteer with a background or interest in community affairs.

This important standing committee is responsible for helping verify, validate and count ballots for the annual MVF Board of Directors election. The committee meets three times each year, twice in March (one meeting and once to count ballots) and once in September at the MVF Office, 10120 Apple Ridge Road (pending COVID-19 operating procedures).

Communications Committee
The MVF Communications Committee is also seeking at least one new member who has interest or knowledge in communications, marketing, public relations, social media or other communications-related background and an interest in serving the community.

The Communications Committee makes recommendations to the MVF Board regarding communications policies, the Village News and other publications, marketing and branding, public information, social networking, website services and other communications issues.

The committee meets four times each year, in February, May, August and November, at 7 p.m.

To apply for any committee, a Committee Membership Application can be found online at www.montgomeryvillage.com under “MVF,” “Committees.”
