Board of Directors

The Gathering Place's Board of Directors

The Gathering Place’s Board of Directors is comprised of members from various community sectors. The board strives to reflect the demographic make-up of the metro-Denver community. Board members are chosen by a nominating committee and elected by the full board to a term of three years. A board member may serve up to two consecutive terms. The Board meets monthly and all members contribute financially in addition to raising funds on behalf of the organization. Board members serve to supervise the President, advise on key issues, and vote on executive-level decisions. Outside of The Gathering Place, they serve as essential ambassadors for the organization's mission and purpose.
