Our Board of Directors are tremendous leaders who volunteer significant personal time and resources to enable the National Network to accomplish its goals. The board meets at least four times per year and at every meeting reviews the quarterly financial report. Throughout the course of implementing our 2015–2018 Strategic Plan, we will grow our Board of Directors and increase the diversity of expertise. During this same time our board will transition from a working board to a governing board. We are extremely grateful for the dedication of our Board of Directors.
