  • 5 people are interested

We are seeking a new trustee with moderate experience with nonprofit boards and a demonstrated passion and experience for working with refugees or forcibly displaced immigrants. Our board of trustees has evolved from a working board to a governing board and is looking for new talent, particularly someone who represents a diversity of thought and lived experiences. If interested, please tell us a bit more about yourself in the comments section. Our board meets virtually. However, it is advantageous to live in New Jersey since attendance for at least one in-person organizational event is required.
