Job Description:

The Board of Directors is responsible for governance and ambassadorship of the organization. All Boards of Directors of nonprofits have both a duty of care and a duty of loyalty to the organizations they serve. As of this writing, PLAN does not suggest a specific amount of money as an annual donation by Directors nor is a specific “get” required. All donations are greatly appreciated.


PLAN is presently seeking additional Board members who will bring certain expertise that will complement and strengthen the current Board. The following types of background and experience will be particularly helpful:

  • Senior leadership experience at companies or organizations that serve people with disabilities and their families
  • Attorneys with experience in elder care and/or special needs work
  • Finance or accounting backgrounds and in particular, asset management experience
  • Experience with and/or interest in what it is like to live with and/or care for someone with a disability
  • Marketing and business development experience

Those who will find the culture of the board to be a particularly good fit will be excellent collaborators, open to the exchange of ideas, and solution and decision-oriented.
