meet our board

We have a hands-on board. They meet monthly on third Mondays from 3:00 to 5:30 with the final hour dedicated to development work following the business meeting. All board members are highly engaged in fundraising and all members are donors at a level they are able, committing to also give or bring in the equivalent of at least one SHERO ($240) annually. Board members also serve on committees, participate in various fund raising events and other programs throughout the year. We can have up to 12 board members and will be adding 2-3 new members in 2018. If interested in serving, please speak with the Executive Director for a nomination form.
