Debunking the myths of volunteer board service:

  • No formal leadership position in a professional role is required to be eligible for any board position.
  • The "Director" role does NOT mean the individual must currently hold a "Director/Manager/Supervisor" job title
  • Previous board experience is NOT required. It is highly preferred for the President-Elect position.
  • No accounting or finance degree is necessary for the Treasurer prosition
