Are you interested in supporting seniors with memory challenges in the Tri-City area?

If the answer is yes, we have just the volunteer opportunity for you!

Elderday Center is seeking candidates for board membership.

We’re looking for individuals who are passionate about improving quality of life for seniors to serve on the Board of Directors for Elderday Center, an organization that provides seniors with memory challenges in the Tri-City community with day memory care and other therapeutic services to enhance cognition, socialization, and overall wellness.

Elderday Center is particularly seeking Board members with expertise in fundraising, grant writing, IT/technology, online systems and marketing, and/or human resources. Previous Board experience is helpful, but not necessary.

What Does It Mean To Be A Board Member?

Board membership goes beyond traditional volunteering and into the highest level of visionary leadership for the organization, assuming legal and financial responsibilities while serving as a community ambassador for Elderday’s mission. Serving as a Board member provides a unique opportunity to put your passion for a social cause into action by applying your experience and expertise to help advance an organization’s impact. It's a rewarding way to fulfill your need to serve your community while learning new skills that can enhance your own career and grow your own personal and professional networks.
