Recruiting Board of Directors

Do you love downtown? Are you excited about HDR’s work and want to get more involved? If you answered yes, consider joining our Board of Directors!

We are accepting statements of interest now through Nov. 11 from community members who would like to serve as HDR’s leadership. Board members serve three year terms and meet 8-10 times a year in addition to attending special events and fund raising activities, and serving on committees or contributing to a project or initiative.

We are particularly interested in “doers” with the time to spend on building our capacity and contributing to the success of our programs. This year we are in need of human resources expertise and someone who can serve as our treasurer (knowledge of accounting and/or nonprofit financial oversight will help guide our staff, bookkeeper and board members). We are seeking experience and expertise in all aspects of nonprofit management (fund development/fund raising – from crafting compelling sponsorship packets to donor appreciation to strategies for making the ask; volunteer recruitment/management/retention; communications and storytelling; and more), advocacy, and project management. If you’ve been following our organization or have been a supporter for years and have another skill that could build our capacity, let us know!

Please fill out this short but sweet online survey to tell us about yourself and let us know how you would like to contribute. Email us if you have any questions.
