Board of Trustees Responsibilities

The volunteers who comprise our Board of Trustees are responsible for guiding and directing the Chapter. The Board works extremely hard to ensure that the Chapter is headed in the right direction and to develop resources to get the job done. 

On an annual basis, the Board of Trustees is elected by the Chapter membership. Board members serve a three-year term and may serve three terms. Every year, each board member is expected to attend six board meetings, generate a minimum of $2,500 for the Chapter, and participate on a minimum of one committee.

We are extremely grateful to these people for their donation of time, talent, and treasure to the fight against MS. For more information about the Board of Trustees, contact Chapter President David Hartman via email or at 1-800-344-4867, (415) 230-6677.
