ADRC Board members;

  • Are thoughtful, civic minded, and energetic.
  • Have strong public relations skills and are willing to promote ADRC and its initiatives.
  • Have a passion for serving and advocating for ADRC customers.
  • Are free from conflicts of interest; they are not providers of services who would receive referrals from ADRC.
  • Believe in and promote ADRC’s Mission and Vision.

Time Commitment

The Board meets ten times a year on the fourth Thursday of the month. The June/July and November/December meetings are combined and may meet on a day other than Thursday.

Meetings begin at 8:30 am and run until 10:30 am.

Board terms are for three years and can be renewed once. After a one year interval board members may be reappointed.

Board members should be able to attend regular meetings and be available for periodic taskforce meetings, special events, and public hearings.
