Board Member Biographies


Interested in Associate Membership?  

Associate members are “Ambassadors for CHIP” in any way they are able. Associate members are added to our internal email list and are notified of volunteer opportunities and CHIP events, while getting the “inside scoop” on our programs.

There is no minimum time commitment, you do what you can. Examples of how you can help:

  • Like, comment and share on social media (we are on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn)
  • Offer workshops on financial, health, education or other services to our residents
  • Volunteer at events
  • Serve on our fundraising committee
  • Share your talents with us

Associate membership is free and is renewed annually. When a position on our board of directors becomes available, we will recruit first from our associate member pool if there is interest.
