Do you …

  • thrill at crossing things off a “To-Do” list?
  • take pride in showing off your “keyboard calluses”?
  • enjoy hours of rousing discussion in and out of the Boardroom?
  • feel your adrenalin rush at the prospect of creative problem-solving?
  • thrive on facing new challenges?
  • dream of being a diplomat but live too far away from the U.N.?
  • believe that volunteer work is more than just something to put on your resume?

If you answered “yes!” to these questions, then a Board position may be right for you!
Be a part of the energy!
