Why should you become a Board member?
Because it’s a great experience! As a volunteer you’ll get to work together with a group of amazing, creative and multi talented people. You will have the chance to learn about how a non-profit organization works and runs efficiently; you may also get the chance to hone your leadership and delegation skills as a committee chair or executive member.
And you get the satisfaction of giving back to a program that does wonderful things for the community and perhaps has made a difference in your life.
Another positive thing is that childcare is provided at the regular board meetings each month and we take turns cooking and chairing the meetings. So you get to learn how to lead the group and taste a variety of new foods, although take out works just as well too. (A $30 reimbursement is provided for food expenses if needed.)
