Board of Directors

The Gathering Place’s Board of Directors currently consists of fifteen individuals from a variety of community sectors. The board strives to reflect the demographic make-up of the metro-Denver community. Board members are chosen by a nominating committee and elected by the full board to a term of three years. A board member may serve up to two consecutive terms. The board meets monthly and sub-committees meet as needed. All members contribute financially and raise funds for the organization. Additionally, board members supervise the President and serve as ambassadors for The Gathering Place in the community.
