The Women’s Center of Jacksonville Board Members
The Women’s Center of Jacksonville is led by a dynamic Board of Directors, comprised of community leaders who are deeply committed to our mission and who come from diverse backgrounds. Each Board member receives orientation training and is required to sit on one of the Board committees. These committees include: Fund Development, Finance and Board Governance. In addition, Board members may serve on any of several ad hoc committees or task forces throughout the year. These include but are not limited to Technology, Strategic Planning and Events.
Board members serve three-year terms. Board meetings are held monthly and include an annual Board retreat. The Governance and the Fund Development Committee arrange for Board orientation and trainings as necessary. Governance reviews Board composition annually to ensure that the Board reflects the community we serve. Based on the review process, potential Board members are recruited and elected throughout the year.
