United, We Can

Building a strong community where all people can thrive depends on your generous support.

The Board is comprised of local business and civic leaders from throughout the community. Members are recommended by a Nominating Committee and are chosen for exhibited leadership in their own organizations and the civic area.

Members provide leadership for vision and overall direction, approve the annual business plan, goals and priority outcomes, monitor progress and have a fiduciary responsibility for the programmatic and fiscal integrity of the organization.
