Available Position: At-large Board Member

At-Large Board Members serve on the Board of Directors and also one of four committees - Governance, Resource Development, Communications, or Programming. They act as full members of the Board of Directors, and also work alongside a mix of Board and Committee members in ongoing committee work.

We welcome prospective Board Members with years of expertise, and those who want to support our mission while learning more about board service. Our organization benefits from members’ previous experience when serving on the board, and we look to develop the skills of those without board service experience.  We have space for a wide variety of ways to contribute and build skills, whether within your current skills or helping you flex and learn in a new workload.

At-large board members will attend full board meetings and respective committee meetings. 

Meeting Times: 

  • The board meets from 6:00 - 8:00 pm on the second Tuesday of every month.

  • Committees meet monthly for 1 or 1.5 hours, at a time selected by the committee as a whole.
