Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is charged with the governance of DEC, making sure that it abides by ethical and legal standards in making its vision a reality  Members serve as trustees of DEC and are responsible to the agency’s clients, to the community, to funders, to the government, and to taxpayers as a whole.  The Board of Directors is also responsible for seeing that the agency keeps the promises described in the agency’s mission and values statements.

The following are just a few of the activities the board is involved in:

  • Policy/Governance

  • Planning (in meaningful partnership with executive director)
  • Committee Service
