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 a diversity of perspectives, experiences and skills, including representation from historically marginalized communities and those with lived experiences of poverty, homelessness, substance misuse, and/or mental health issues. 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 governance-level decisions. Outside of The Gathering Place, they serve as essential ambassadors for the organization's mission and purpose.
