The Center's Board consists of passionate and knowledgeable professionals who are committed to volunteering their time to support the operations of this non-profit. All Board members are professionals that live and work in the Washington Metropolitan area and bring skills in the areas of child welfare, public relations, computer technology, personnel management, media, and fiscal sustainability. Board members have a fiduciary and moral obligation for the policy oversight of the Center. We have an ethnic and gender diverse Board, with representation from major corporations, small business owners, consultants, public institutions, government, and the broadcast media. The Board meets four times a year.
