Leadership Opportunities to Extend Your Passion
Board member roles in making a difference
As parents, aunts and uncles we dedicate our time to our rising stars and the future of our nation. Whether at the ice rink, dance studio
or soccer field, many of us dedicate and volunteer our time to mentor, coach and help our youth and their friends. We continuously focus on
helping others to achieve their potential and make a mark in their lives.
As health care providers we have gained tremendous knowledge, skill and expertise as clinical and administrative experts and have dedicated our careers to client centric care. Many of us work with volunteers and see the ultimate value they bring to the health care system. Opportunities exist
to give back in different ways including becoming a Director on a Board. This experience creates opportunities to enhance one’s leadership by
increasing knowledge on how organizations are impacted by legislation, politics, resources, and it’s response to being accountable to the public.
The Board Directors work with the Chief Executive Officer/President, the senior team, and the organization’s community stakeholders to guide decisions about using limited resources in an environment of competing demands, while enabling the organization to meet the healthcare needs
of its population.
