Alder Health Services seeks board members to share the leadership and to continue to build the vision and mission of this unique, essential organization of the South Central Pennsylvania region. Alder Heath Services improves the health and well-being of individuals living with HIV/AIDS and members of the LGBTQ community by providing a culturally competent and affirming environment that empowers the people we serve.
Alder provides primary health care, behavioral health care, case management and support, as well as education and wellness programs.
Interested candidates should have a passion for making health care services available to the entire spectrum of South Central PA citizens, regardless of economic status, race, gender, or sexual orientation, and/or a particular passion for the health needs of the regional LGBT community. The AHS board seeks to augment its current skill set with those who have experience and success as fundraisers as well as recruiting and building boards.
The commitment of a board member entails one 1.5-2-hour meeting per month. The full board meets bi-monthly, alternating with standing committee meetings. Preparation for these meetings may entail 1 – 2 hours’ work, though chairs typically require more time per meeting. All board members are expected to serve on at least one committee.
An annual contribution of time and service and/or funds is expected of each board member, though each board member may determine the amount of his/her contribution.
Board terms are three years each for up to two consecutive terms, after which a minimum of a one-year hiatus is required before a former board member can return to the board.
