Time Commitment
The board position requires a commitment of 8-10 hours per month for a minimum of two years. We offer a lot of flexibility in when and how you complete those hours and many of the tasks and responsibilities can be done remotely, working online, at a time that is convenient for you. This position does require mandatory attendance at a monthly board meeting (usually Tuesday evenings).

This is a volunteer position. There will be no financial compensation. Our organization is 100% volunteer run.
