Board of Directors

InterAction is managed by a committed and active board of directors. Diverse in representation, we seek variety in NGO size, geographic representation, a mix of faith-based and secular organizations, CEO gender, a balance of new and returning board members, and experience. Our board members are expected to participate for the good of the whole rather than as representatives of individual organization perspectives. In addition to oversight of InterAction, the board engages on multiple levels of thinking regarding issues for our community.
