Board of Directors members

A big thank you to all our outstanding volunteers!

Mira’s Board of Directors is made up of sixteen (16) volunteers from a variety of business backgrounds. They meet on a regular basis to oversee the management of the Mira Foundation.

They also bring complementary skills from their respective backgrounds (fiscal, book keeping, legal, etc.), as well as an outside perspective that allows Mira to remain attentive to the reality of ever-increasing needs.
