In general, the board is made up of 6-9 people, with three executive roles (chair, secretary, and treasurer). We meet in North Portland, generally every 4-6 weeks, with a 1-2 day deep dive retreat in the spring (sometimes it’s an evening and the following day, sometimes just a solid 8-9 hours together). About half of the board leans toward a more advisory and governance posture (most of their contributions come during meetings, through experience, connections, and lived wisdom) and the other half are a working board, and more involved in the week-to-week happenings of the organization.
