Alder Health Services seeks board members to share the responsibility of leadership and support the mission and vision of the premiere LGBTQ+ serving organization in South Central Pennsylvania.  The mission of Alder Health is to improve 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.  Those interested in joining our board of directors should have a passion for making health care services available to the entire spectrum of South Central PA residents, regardless of economic status, race, gender or gender expression, sexual orientation with a particular interest in supporting the health and wellness needs of the regional LGBTQ+ community. Candidates should possess a skill set or area of expertise that would contribute to the organization's ongoing success, such as fundraising, finance, healthcare, media, and community-based services. 

Alder Health’s core services include behavioral health, case management, STI and HIV testing, primary medical care, family planning, pharmacy services, and wellness activities.

Board Member Commitment of Time, Talent and Resources:

Board terms are three years.  Board members may serve a maximum of two consecutive terms, after which a minimum one-year hiatus is required before being considered to return to board service. 

 


All board members are expected to serve on at least one committee.  Committee meetings are held in the alternate months between board meetings.  These meetings are typically an hour in duration.  Committee Chairs are likely to spend an hour or two preparing for committee meetings.  The Board’s Standing Committees are:

Board members are expected to volunteer, attend or otherwise participate in at least one fundraising or other special events per year.

An annual financial contribution is required of each board member.  There is no pre-set amount and each board member should determine their level of giving based on personal resources.
