Easterseals Colorado is now taking applications for members of the newly formed Advisory Board.
The Advisory Board will support the work of Easterseals Colorado and provide mission-based leadership and strategic governance. While day-to-day operations are led by Easterseals Northern Colorado’s VP, the Advisory Board-VP relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Advisory Board is both critical and expected. As supporters of the Easterseals Colorado’s mission, the board provides professional expertise and guidance to help navigate and mitigate potential risks, discover opportunities, and define benchmarks for continued success and organizational growth.
Easterseals Colorado is seeking advisory board members that are trusted leaders in our community and are known for being changemakers in their career and community. Selected Advisory Board Members will have achieved leadership stature in business, government, philanthropy, fleet management, or the nonprofit sector.
Easterseals Colorado’s Advisory Board Members will serve a one-year term to be eligible for re-appointment for one additional term. Advisory Board meetings will be held quarterly and committee meetings will be held in coordination with full board meetings. Easterseals Northern Colorado Advisory Board Members will consider Easterseals Colorado a philanthropic priority and make annual gifts that reflect that priority. Service on Easterseals Colorado’s Advisory Board is without remuneration.
Easterseals provides a variety of home and community-based services equipping adults with disabilities opportunities to live, learn, work and play as a vital part of their own community. In addition, these valuable programs offer respite, support, and education for family members and other caregivers.
