ESC Board of Directors

Volunteerism at ESC begins with the Board of Directors, the organization’s engaged and dedicated governing body.  Directors come from the corporate and nonprofit sectors, and include several ESC Consultants who speak to the issues facing nonprofits across the region and the ways ESC can help.  The board meets five times a year and much of the board’s work is accomplished through its standing committees: Finance, Governance, Program, Marketing & Events, and Diversity & Inclusion Task Force.
