Volunteer Opportunities

Board of Directors

The PNODN Board of Directors is recruiting members interested in a leadership position.  

Open:  Board Member at Large

The primary role of the board of directors is to facilitate a process for defining the organization's vision and mission. The board also works to help ensure PNODN delivers on its commitments to members and constituents, and holds legal and fiduciary responsibility for the organization.

Commitment: Time commitment for board members varies, but runs somewhere between 6-12 hours a month, depending on how ambitious and available the board member feels. In general there is a need to attend monthly board meetings which last 2-3 hours and a monthly program meeting which lasts 3 hours. Board members should be willing to attend these on a regular basis, although we understand that work and life happens.
