Board of Directors

The Make-A-Wish® Chapter Board of Directors helps chart the organization’s course. They contribute a vast array of experience and skills that help maintain our status as the nation’s largest wish-granting organization.

Our Board is composed of seasoned Make-A-Wish veterans with a wide variety of experiences not just with our organization, but with many other great groups, and life itself. They're the type of people you look to because they lead by example. They are always willing to take time out from their busy schedules to meet regularly, troubleshoot problems, and plan for the future.
