Consumer Opportunity – CIF Selection Committee

CIF Selection Committee – Spring 2017

I am writing you as Coordinator of the Consumer Initiative Fund (CIF).

CIF funds projects, proposed and run by people with lived experience with mental health and/or addiction for participants also with lived experience.

The call is out for proposals of projects.

(For the forms and info see: )

We need two volunteers for the CIF Selection Committee.

The selection committee works with me and my liaison contractor in going through the proposals received, rating them and then making the decision on which projects will be sponsored by CIF.

Applicants must send in a resume and cover letter, along with 2 letters of reference.

Skills we are looking for:

  • Being Prompt
  • Organized
  • Able to work on own
  • Able to work in a committee
  • Good communication skills
  • Experience with mental health and/or substance use services

There will be an honorarium for committee members of a total of $100 for rating the proposals and attending the Selection Committee meeting – both required to receive the honorarium.

What is involved is rating the proposals – the proposal and scoring sheet package will be available for pick up on Friday, March 3, 2017. And must be rated by Wednesday, March 8, 2017.

The selection meeting will take place Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 1 pm.
