These are the people who are legally and fiscally responsible for Do Something. They are sort of like owners ... except that instead of cutting up the profits (there are none), they give us advice, support, money, and in some cases, their first-born child. We meet with them 4 times a year -- and we have great attendance at Board meetings because this is a fun group of smart people. Most of them are also on committees that meet in between Board meetings-so they are an involved, active, group of intelligent people. Board terms start in October.
