We are continuing to build our board of Trustees and Community Advisory
Board. It is our desire to connect with individuals who are genuinely
interested in unencumbered, volunteer leadership opportunities as a member
of either of these respective bodies. Non-profit board experience is
preferred, but not required.
The chief responsibility of our board is governance, policy guidance and
insuring the fiscal and financial stability of the organization
(fundraising). The Board of Trustees meets four (4) times per year.
These meetings are held at the end of each quarter and scheduled up to one
(1) year in advance. All members are expected to actively serve on at
least two (2) standing committees, which meet as needed prior to quarterly
general body meetings. One board term is Three (3) years. New members
coming onto the board serve the first year as a Pro-Temp board member.
Upon completion of the Pro-Temp year, the member is voted to continue the
remaining two years. A member upon re-election may serve consecutive
terms based on productivity in membership.

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) meets semi annually. One term is two
years and any continuation is based on productivity.

It is of grave importance that persons expressing interest be familiar
with the tenants of good leadership. It would greatly assist this process
to receive a response regarding interest by Monday, April 3, 2017.
