Join a Board or Committee

Board of Directors

Our board of directors are nominated by the Baord Development Committee. Directors agree to donate and/or generate $10,000 of revenue each year in their role as fiduciary representatives of the organization, and to serve on one of the board committees (board development, program, development and communications, and finance). We also seek to have community representation on the board to reflect the diversity and concerns of the communities we serve.
