Board Members volunteer time from their very busy lives to oversee the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), set policy, and determine direction for the agency. They invite staff to participate with them in creating the agency's strategic long-range plan and monitor progress toward goals. In addition, they take their responsibility as stewards of public and private funds very seriously, reviewing financial operations regularly. People are drawn to serve through their affiliation with disabilities and are selected by the nominating committee when their personal skills and talents fit Board openings. Interested applicants for Board positions may contact Marti Johnson, the agency's CEO at 360-577-9093.
