Why Your Nonprofit Organization Needs Members

To thrive, our nonprofit organization needs public support. While our organization’s board is its governance and head, our organization’s general membership is its heart and soul.

Our members define our organization. With diverse membership our organization represents families, neighbors, teachers, health care workers, business owners, seniors, artists, historians, contractors. Who our members are shapes our public identity. Each member also brings expertise and diversity, expanding the organization’s capacity and knowledge.

When a member is on board with our mission, understands his or her role on the team, and is excited about our organization’s work and plans, that member becomes an ambassador for our organization.

Nominations open for new Board Members!
