The volunteers who comprise our Board of Trustees are responsible for guiding and directing the Chapter. The Board works tirelessly to ensure that the Chapter is headed in the right direction and is developing resources to get the job done.
The Board of Trustees is elected by the Chapter membership annually at the Northern California Chapter Annual Meeting. Board members serve one-year renewable terms. The Northern California Chapter Board of Trustees is a governance board. Board members attend quarterly meetings and guide the Chapter to make strategic decisions so that those living with MS are best served.
We are extremely grateful to these volunteers for their donation of time, talent and treasure to create a world free of MS. For more information about the Board of Trustees, contact Chapter President Janelle Del Carlo via email or at 1-800-344-4867 or 415-230-6677.
