Board Member - Strategic Planning

Save to Favorites


  • 8 people are interested

Our organization is seeking a board member who can provide guidance in areas of long-range planning and strategic thinking. We are a multifaceted organization, constantly confronted with new needs and program opportunities. The expertise of a board member experienced in evaluation of options and development of annual and longer-range plans would be very valuable.

We are also interested in board members with other skills that may be beneficial to West Place.

In order to assist our financial growth, we also look toward the willingness of our advisory board members to provide an annual monetary donation that they feel is reasonable and appropriate, to the best of their financial ability. You can directly help us maintain a clear path toward our future endeavors. We thank you in advance for your interest in joining this incredible organization.

Please do look at our website. Not only will it show you a great deal about our organization, but you'll learn that our executive director was named a "2017 Rhode Islander of the Year," and gave a TEDx Talk in 2018, both related to her work with West Place.

We hope you will chose to be a part of this wonderful organization.
