Membership Directory


2018 Membership Form

  • Criteria for Designees: One Voice is an Executive Director/CEO-led coalition, and it is expected that the Executive Director/CEO of Voting Member organizations will represent their organization at membership meetings. However, an Executive Director/CEO may request to designate one person to be the organization’s exclusive voting representative if there is a reason that they are unable to participate themselves.

    The designee must:
    -Attend all meetings instead of the ED/CEO,
    -Be on a comparative level within the organization’s structure as other EDs/CEOs,
    -Be able to act on behalf of the organization as an ED/CEO would, and
    -Have the authority to vote on behalf of their organization at meetings.

    Those who would like to designate a representative for the year must attach a letter to this form signed by the ED, CEO or Board Chair requesting the designation of the organization representative and include the reason why they are unable to participate themselves. All designees are subject to approval by the Executive Committee. EDs/CEOs must submit a new designee request letter every year. Approved designee requests are reviewed annually and are valid for one year.

    While all designee requests are considered on a case-by-case basis, please refer to the following criteria when submitting your request:
    -Organizations must have a budget of greater than $3 million to request a designee.
    -Qualifying reasons for a designee include: ED has an ongoing, standing conflict during the scheduled general member meetings; ED has an illness or ongoing health issue which inhibits attendance at general member meetings.
    Not having time to participate in One Voice meetings is not an acceptable reason to appoint a designee.
