Join CUP’s board!

Join CUP's board!

CUP seeks board members interested in and excited about our work, and who are committed to increasing the power and representation of historically marginalized communities in public policy, urban planning, and civic decision-making.

Our board members are strategic partners ensuring that we continue to deliver on our mission and deepen the reach and impact of our work in meaningful ways.

CUP is committed to addressing issues of inequity and actively works to make sure our board reflects the communities our work serves. In particular, we strongly encourage people of color; women; LGBTQ+, GNC, and non-binary individuals; people with disabilities; immigrants; and formerly incarcerated people, or people who have been justice-involved to apply. We are also committed to age diversity, and encourage people both young and old (however you define that!) and in-between to apply. We seek to add diversity to the personal and professional networks represented on our board, which is currently strongly rooted in the fields of architecture and affordable housing, and would benefit from the inclusion of other fields and sectors.

QUALIFICATIONS: We seek to add board members who bring depth of experience in their field to CUP to support our continued growth and development. Currently, we have several openings and are prioritizing individuals with the following backgrounds, skills, and experience: 

Nonprofit management experience

Strategic partnership experience

Financial management or business development experience

Philanthropy and/or fundraising expertise

HOW TO APPLY:

If you are interested in the position and believe your experience aligns with one of the priority areas listed above, please apply! Your application should include (in this order):

- A cover letter, in which you address why you are interested in being on CUP’s board, how your experience qualifies you for it, and how you hope to contribute
- A current resume
- If you identify with a historically marginalized community or group, please let us know if you are comfortable doing so.

Please send all materials as a single PDF (max 5 MB) to apply@welcometoCUP.org by October 14th, 5:00pm Eastern Time. Include “Board Member” in the subject line. 

No phone calls, please.
