About the Board
The Board of Directors is expected to safeguard the mission, ensure the organization’s legal and financial health, and lead fundraising efforts.
The Board of Directors meets six times per year plus a half-day annual retreat usually in the fall.
There is a $1,000 requested minimum contribution which may be made personally or by raising said funds through other asks and opportunities ("Give or Get").
Normal board membership is for one 3-year term, but may be extended by a vote of the board. We do not have term limits.
The Board is led by an executive committee consisting of the President, the Secretary, and the Treasurer.
