About Us >> Governance


Copley Health Systems is a private non-profit organization that believes in holding ourselves accountable to the community we serve and our governance structure reflects those values.

Board of Trustees
The hospital is governed by bylaws and a volunteer Board of Trustees. Each trustee is a corporate member and lives or works in Copley Hospital's service area. Each Trustee  provides professional expertise pertinent to the governing of a community non-profit organization. We strive for trustees to be representative of the communities we serve.Trustees serve as volunteers; they are not paid for their service on the board.

Corporate Members
Corporate Members guide the governance of the hospital by approving proposed bylaw changes and electing trustees representative of the community to govern the hospital. Corporate Members are asked to serve a three year term and are invited to attend the annual meeting in January.

As with trustees, Copley strives for membership representative of the community with a range of skills and talents pertinent to the governing of a community non-profit health care resource. People interested in serving as a corporate member must be 18 years or older and live part or full time in Copley’s service area or be employed in Copley’s service area. In the case of physicians or other health care professionals, they must also be credentialed by Copley. An application for membership must be submitted by November 1. The application is available by contacting the Executive Assistant to the President of Copley at 802-888-8157. The hospital also promotes the application process each fall in local newspapers.
