Founded by Fr. Richard Rohr, the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) exists to introduce Christian contemplative wisdom and practices that support transformation and inspire loving action. Volunteers on CAC board committees play an instrumental role in helping guide the development of policies and procedures that help our team carry out the mission of CAC in a sustainable and impactful way.
CAC faces a difficult challenge and amazing opportunity. We possess a stable financial foundation and strong internal controls. At the same time, we are working to institutionalize our founder’s vision, values, and impact in order to ensure we can carry them forward in service to future generations of spiritual seekers.
As part of this transition, we are seeking candidates to become volunteer members of CAC’s Finance and Operations Committee. Most committee volunteers are not on the full Board of Directors but oversee the organization’s financial model and key internal controls on its behalf. Uniquely, the Committee is also overseeing implementation of CAC’s newly adopted Financial Philosophy, created with Fr. Richard’s support in 2020 to foster congruence in all aspects of our financial model with the values and spirituality we teach.
Ideal candidates bring a diversity of backgrounds and leadership experience in relation to values-based financial and operations management. We are looking particularly for candidates with executive-level experience in finance, investment management (especially socially responsible and impact investing), operations management, information technology, gift economy-based revenue models, and fundraising. Candidates should have a sharp mind, contemplative spirit, servant’s heart, and passion for helping realize CAC’s vision and mission.
What We’re Looking For
Candidates will be considered on a rolling basis and based on specific desired skills and other needs. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
We are so grateful for your interest and generosity in offering to serve CAC’s mission in this voluntary capacity.
