Are you intrigued by our mission and journey but don’t think being part of our board is the right fit given other time commitments? If so, perhaps a less involved yet still impactful role as an Advisor could work. Advisors are experienced individuals who are willing to periodically meet with existing board members or staff and provide advice and guidance as appropriate. Advisors would essentially serve as our bench as we try and tackle new and exciting challenges that align with our mission and vision.
