Board of Directors

Our board of directors make up a governing board, providing insight and perspective to the CEO. The board oversees three main strategic initiatives—governance, financial sustainability, and advocacy.

Additionally, our board of directors serve as key members of committees including Governance, Financial Sustainability, Advocacy, and more.
