Volunteering Foundation Board of Directors

Volunteer Board Members are active participants at Family Services of the North Shore .

The Board of Directors (Foundation) acts in a position of trust and is responsible for the effective governance of the Foundation. The Board reports to the Agency Governing Board.

  • Legal
  • Fund Development
  • Communications / Marketing
  • Previous Board experience / governance
  • Community Profile / Influence
