The GEBA Board of Directors is a volunteer body responsible for policy-making and legal governance for GEBA. The Board determines the vision, mission, strategic direction and priorities for the Association. Further, board members provide financial and legal oversight of the Association on behalf of members.
Are you looking for an opportunity to serve on a non-profit Board of Directors? Do you have relevant knowledge, experience, time and commitment to work within a collective and collaborative decision-making body? Interested candidates are welcome to submit their name for consideration as a Board candidate for 2024! When I was recruited by a board member, I wasn’t completely sure what was expected of me. However, with excellent support from the GEBA staff and the other board members, I quickly became acclimated and realized how gratifying it was to be part of a quality, member-focused association.
Serving in a Board member capacity has greatly expanded my knowledge of non-profit organizations, enabled me to build camaraderie and relationships with professional peers, and provided the opportunity to apply specialized skills. This role makes me feel like I am making a difference. It has been my pleasure to work with esteemed colleagues and has been an extremely fulfilling experience, both personally and professionally!
