Embrace’s Board of Directors are committed to the best practices in governance, accountability and transparency. The 15 member Board brings expertise and knowledge from a variety of sectors in order to uphold the organization’s mission. The Full Board of Directors meets on the fourth Thursday of every other month at 9am, and the Embrace Executive Committee meets monthly. Board meetings are scheduled to take place on a rotating basis in all three counties across the Embrace service area. Embrace is recruiting for Board Members from Washburn, Price and Rusk Counties!
