We are an
all-volunteer, non-profit organization that has 501c(3) status. Our Board of Directors is charged with building a supporting infrastructure and
determining the Network’s strategic direction. The Board raises funds and
decides how to allocate resources. Most Board work occurs in committees, where
issues are studied, proposals developed and activities implemented.
We have four different committees. If you are interested in volunteering to
help the Network, please email the committee chair of the committee you are
interested in. If you have general questions, or would like to contribute to
the Network in another way, please contact Barb Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org Board Chair.
