Please contact a board member today to see if you can donate some of your valuable time to making a Child’s Wish come true.
Our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month at 6:45 PM at the A Childs Wish Headquarters located at 608 Clearview Parkway, Metairie, Louisiana 70001.
Membership is open to anyone who is interested in helping make the wish come true for a child with a life-threatening illness. Volunteers must be willing to attend monthly meetings and respect the by-laws and charter of A Child’s Wish.
All members are requested to pay annual dues amounting to $15 for a single membership and $25 for a family membership. Other types of memberships are also available
The officers of A Child’s Wish are responsible for conducting the day-to-day operation of the organization. The officers are president, president elect / vice president, secretary and treasurer. Officers are elected by the Board of Directors and serve for one year. The President appoints the Wish Chairperson, Historian, Membership Chairperson and Media Chairperson.
After one year as a member, the Board will review the performance of the individual and may nominate the individual to a position on the Board of Directors. To qualify a person must be: a member in good standing (having paid his yearly membership dues) for at least one year and must have attended 75% of the meetings during that time. Attendance at monthly meetings is required. We expect our Board to be an active Board; therefore, absence for more than 3 meetings is grounds for removal from the Board.
Any dues payer is a member. As a member, you have a vote in electing the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors then elects the officers to run the corporation for one year. Only Board members are allowed to vote to approve the granting of a wish and to approve the budget for the wish.
Members are encouraged, but not required, to attend and/or support fundraising events which benefit A Child’s Wish.
Members are neither encouraged nor discouraged from soliciting contributions for A Child’s Wish.
That’s the easy part! Attend our monthly meetings; work on wishes with an experienced member and request assignment to a committee(s). Share our excitement in fulfilling dreams and use and develop your own special talents.
