We are committed to inclusive recruiting practices to ensure equitable access for community members of diverse backgrounds and abilities.

Our current Board membership includes students, retirees, professionals, educators, entrepreneurs, and arts workers. There are Directors in their twenties, in their seventies, and all decades in between.
