“Serving on a board as given me rewards way past my wildest imagination.  The most important reward is relationships both personal and professional.  I would have never had the opportunity to work as closely with other professionals in my field.  When would you have the opportunity to collaborate, share ideas, work toward a common goal, laugh and enjoy each other’s company?  This has been truly a rewarding experience for me and I hope I can continue to volunteer in some capacity in the future.”

Intent to run for a position must be in writing to Catherine by February 14, 2020.  If you have any questions, or want to be considered for one of these coveted positions, contact Catherine Donovan
