We are seeking experienced, strategic not-for-profit directors who understand the role of the board in providing oversight, foresight and insight. We welcome expertise in a variety of disciplines, and an interest in participating on one of our three committees: Fundraising Development; Audit and Finance; or Governance and Nominations.
