About our Board of Directors

______________

Chanco on the James is a 501(c)(3) organization that is managed by a volunteer board of directors under the guidance and leadership of the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia, the Rt. Rev. Herman “Holly” Hollerith, IV.

The Chanco Board of Directors is made up of clergy and lay persons and we strive to represent all convocations in the Diocese. All board members are members in good standing of an Episcopal church in the Diocese of Southern Virginia. The Board President reports directly to the Bishop of the Diocese of Southern Virginia.

Meet our amazing Board

Our board members all have distinct connections to Chanco whether through the camp programs as a camper or having children who were campers, the Happening program, the Cursillo program, and EYC (Episcopal Youth Community) retreat programs among many other Chanco connections.

If you are someone who cares deeply for Chanco’s ministry and its future growth and success, then serving on the Chanco Board of Directors could be your calling. The Chanco Board specifically strives to have members with expertise in finance, accounting, fundraising, personnel, and property.

Applications are vetted through the board and then sent to the Bishop for approval. Board terms are three years in length and a board member may serve two consecutive terms before a mandatory year off.

New board member applications are generally solicited and accepted from October – January of the calendar year with new board members beginning in February. Questions? Contact Executive Director Gareth Kalfas at director@chanco.org. Completed applications may be emailed to Gareth at this address.

Serving on the Chanco Board is one simple but very important way you can give back to Chanco and make a difference in Chanco’s future. Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this important adult and youth ministry of our diocese!
