Board membership allows the volunteer to assist in guiding our organization in meeting its mission. This entails supporting the Executive Director in meeting the organization goals, providing organizational oversight, fundraising, and strategic planning. Board members are also asked to take an active role in supporting the organization and becoming ambassadors for BACN in the community! We are still holding meetings through Zoom during COVID.
