Board Members Needed

Al GAMEA encourages interest in serving on the board of directors or on a board committee. We are a young nonprofit, founded in 2004, but professional in our approach to governance and board leadership. We are currently building a board of individuals that have passion for our mission and are willing to devote approximately 4 to 8 hours a month of time via board meetings, committee meetings, emails and other activities, to help us establish and grow the organization. Board membership is a volunteer duty. We do ask every board member to make an annual personal donation to our general fund at a level they are comfortable with. We take engagement seriously and request our board members to agree to attend 75% of our board meetings, committee meetings and events each fiscal year. We need and appreciate many skill sets, but will give preference to individuals that will participate in fundraising and ambassadorship of the mission. Thank for your interest in the Al GAMEA.

 

Preference will be given to board members that would like to participate in fundraising
