Serve on the Board of Directors.

The business of the organization is overseen by the board of directors who are elected by the membership. The board consist of 15 members, who serve three year terms.

New board members are sought in late fall. Anyone interested in serving on the board may request an application. The Nominating Committee interviews all potential board members and then recommends a slate to the membership.  Members are sent ballots that are then counted and the results announced at the annual meeting.

Board meetings are held every other month and all board members also serve on at least one committee or work group.

Meet our current Board members.
