Board meetings are held on the third Sunday of every other month and are listed in the calendar. All community members are encouraged to attend. If you have questions or input regarding board meetings or the agenda, please contact the board president, Tiska Blankenship, .

Board members serve one- or two-year terms. Officers serve one-year terms. New board members are elected in the fall at the annual membership meeting. About half the board members are replaced each year when their two-year terms are up. Hence, several board members continue their terms each year to help the new members get started. Each meeting lasts approximately two hours. Please consider volunteering for the board. It is a valuable and much appreciated service to the community and a great way to get involved.
