North Country is always looking for a few good board members! 

Did you know North Country’s board of directors and staff are comprised of at least 51% people with disabilities? It is part of our way to ensure consumer control of the organization. We strongly believe that the lessons we learn from our disability experience provides valuable information to other consumers. Our 9-member board will have a position available in January 2018 as one of our board members is approaching the end of her 2nd term. Our new member could be a family member, interested professional, community member or a consumer.

We also like to have geographic representation. We have Parents, Native Americans, City Counselors, Bankers, Community Advocates, etc serving.

Board members set policy for the organization and attend quarterly board meetings in Superior, participate in committee meetings, training opportunities, etc. It is a volunteer board but we do reimburse for expenses. It is a lot for work but also fun and has many opportunities.
