OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS

This webpage is under construction.

The Board of Directors acts in an advisory capacity to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Tap In Leadership Academy (Tap In). Board Members support the work of Tap In and provide mission-based leadership and strategic governance. Although day-to-day operations are led by the CEO, the Board is responsible for advising the CEO, suggesting new organization-wide policies and procedures, and acting as a liaison between Tap In and the community in regards to fundraising and outreach efforts. Consistent involvement of Board Members is both expected and critical.
