Board of Directors

Tesh, Inc. is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who represent a broad range of interests within our community.

Members serve a three year term.

The Board of Directors act as the formal representatives of the public, governing and providing oversight of all of the organization’s programs activities. This includes financial oversight and monitoring program performance and impact.

They also provide strategic direction and policy recommendations. In addition to participating in the monthly Board meetings, each member of the Tesh Board supports the organization by sitting on at least one Board subcommittee, by volunteering, assisting with fund-raising, and advising in their respective areas of expertise.
