Our Governance 

Board of Directors

A 15-member Board of Directors governs our Federation. Elected each year at our Annual Meeting, these volunteers include many of our most active supporters and leaders in our community. Board members also serve with other local volunteers on a series of committees that oversee Federation operations, as well as the direction of our various philanthropic programs.
