Brain Injury Association of Georgia BIAG

For the safety of our staff, board of directors, volunteers and professionals, Brain Injury Association of Georgia is now VIRTUAL.

Be a part of a growing organization that is in need of members who have a passion about helping others who are disabled by a brain injury-TBI/ABI. We need a mix of basic skills that could include management in corporations, financial, marketing, technical, entrepreneurial, legal, grant writing, fundraising, event planning and social service skills. *Note: We are currently seeking a volunteer as a board treasurer

We also realize the value of people who are not professionals, such as a parent of a child or husband of a wife impacted by brain injury, who is willing to be heavily involved in our work. Passion and commitment are just as important as specific skills.

Becoming involved can be a meaningful way to explore how your experience and expertise can help advance a nonprofit organization's impact to the brain injury community, help raise awareness and ways to financially sustain our organization and its programs and services which are offered free to individuals, veterans, families and providers who service them.

You may know of a loved one, or a friend, who has sustained a brain injury - a stroke, a sports concussion, aneurysm or a car accident. Volunteer board members play an essential role in helping Brain Injury Association of Georgia - we can continue to provide services to these individuals and families, who are also impacted. We serve all brain injuries, all ages from birth to our elderly.

We are looking for committed people who want to be a part of a team passionate about our mission - providing hope, help and support to those who have sustained or have been affected by brain injury.
