They bring a range of expertise to the organization including business, healthcare, finance, and first-hand knowledge of the needs of seniors and people with disabilities. Members serve three-year terms, during which time attendance is expected at monthly meetings. The board meets nine times a year. With the assistance of the Executive Director, Board members are expected to identify and recruit volunteers and donors.
