Board Structure

Our completely volunteer organization is operated by a 10-member working Board of Directors elected by the membership. The president functions as the chief executive officer. The Board has overall responsibility for the operations and financial stability of the corporation. The Board is comprised of officers that function as standing committee chairs. The committees are: Bylaws, Facilities, Education, Finance, Membership, Philanthropic Programs, Planned Giving, Resale Shop, Social, Speaker's Bureau and Strategic Planning. They are responsible for membership recruitment and development, oversight of philanthropic program operation, fund development, marketing, budget, financial oversight/reporting, as well as management of our retail business. Functions like janitorial, facility maintenance, bookkeeping and CPA services are contracted to independent professionals. There are no outside Board members and the Board is not compensated. The membership is composed of 299 working volunteers who pay annual dues of $75. They reside in all parts of the Greater Sacramento area. Members range in age from 45-85. While membership is open to all sexes, the majority of our members are female. We also have a small cadre of community volunteers performing physical and mechanical tasks, most of them male. We have an outside Advisory Council of nine members that provide professional expertise and guidance in the areas of law, accounting, banking, investments, real estate and business operation.
