Board of Directors     

The MRS Board of Directors is composed of elected officers and directors. Directors are elected for three-year terms with one third of the board changing each year. The president-elect serves three years (as president-elect, president and past president); the secretary is elected for a three-year term; and the treasurer is appointed yearly by the Board. Members of the Board may serve on the Board’s committees (Executive, Finance and Audit, Governance, Nominating), Board task forces or other ad hoc efforts commissioned by the Board.
Cherie Kagan, the 2021 President of MRS, discusses changes in the MRS Governance structure that provides greater engagement and empowerment of both volunteers and staff in alignment with the MRS mission.
