MVAL Board of Directors
The Mid-Valley Board consists of volunteer officers and directors. The position of director is a very important position, because it provides an opportunity for members to become acquainted with the individual operations of the organization.
MVAL is a most extraordinary organization and requires many dedicated volunteers. What we do is nothing short of amazing and it is accomplished by many persons taking on one small responsibility and doing it well. The total number of directors is nine and they typically serve for a period of three years. Directors have full voting rights on the Board and their presence at the Board meetings is very important.
The goal is for Directors to "graduate" to become an Officer or Chair in the future. Directors assist committee chairs when necessary; this includes all of the many activities MVAL performs. A director is a valued future leader; this generally means doing one small duty to keep all of our wheels rolling. Consider becoming a director in 2020,
MVAL thrives because of volunteers like you.
