IWS Board of Directors and Bio’s (Click on Name)

We are looking for new board members for the new year. Are you the newest board member? We are looking for individuals in the community that are passionate about our mission and ready to serve. You can serve one to two year commitments and are required to make an annual contribution and attend a minimum of four board meetings annually. Beginning 2016, there is one annual board retreat, quarterly socials are not mandatory but encouraged, with encouragement to lead one event in addition to the “Give or Get” approach to fundraising for our programs. We attend the Board Recruitment Fair with United Way annually. See you there in 2016!
