Governing Council

Who Are We?

Clan Cunningham International is an established yet innovative nonprofit organization; originally incorporated in the State of Tennessee as Clan
Cunningham USA in 2002, and expanding to its current role as Clan Cunningham International in August 2009. CCI now has members in Scotland,
England, Ireland, Canada, Spain, and New Zealand as well as the US. It is recognized as an official Scottish Clan society by the Council of Scottish
​Clans and Associations (COSCA).
Formed by a committed community of leaders from around the world and across the nation, CCI's officers have had extensive involvement in other Scottish societies; with many serving as Clan Founders, High Commissioners or National Officers.
 
The Governing Council meetings are held regularly throughout the year via Skype. Minutes are taken at each meeting and posted on this web-site. All business is conducted by a quorum of the leadership in accordance with the By-Laws of the corporation. 
 
It is our utmost desire to have an open and fully democratic governing system. To that end, anyone is welcome to contact us for information on the organization, its goals and activities..
