board of directors

The Cancer Wellness Center’s 17-member Board of Directors meets six times a year and focuses on five areas: mission, vision, values and goals, strategies and resources. Additionally, a five-member executive team leads the efforts of the board.

The Board of Directors has three major roles:

  1. Establish mission and direction.
  2. Ensure the organization has the necessary resources of funds and leadership to implement the mission.
  3. Provide legal and fiduciary oversight on behalf of the people served, the supporters, and the public.

In effort to continue to strive for programmatic excellence and future financial security of the organization, Board of Directors began a strategic planning process in 2015. The plan’s implementation began in January of 2016.
