You have questions about volunteering on the board?
We have answers!
Will I work alone or have support?
Some committees have co-chairs. Others are led by one person, but in either case, you can expect support from committee members and/or others who’ve been in your role before.
What if I’m interested but have no experience?
While experience is great, a strong interest in, and curiosity about a specific position can take you far – especially, knowing that you’ll get great mentoring from prior chairs and committee members.
What sort of time commitment is called for?
You can expect to invest about 2-5 hours a month, depending on your committee’s purpose and job. The amount of time you put in can decrease if you are working with a co-chair or committee members.
How long is a term on the Board?
A Board term is two years, starting in July, which is our fiscal year.
How often and where do we meet?
The board meets once a month, on the last Friday of the month. We meet in-person 6 times a year, and virtually, 5 times a year. Each board meeting follows either an in-person program or a webinar.
