We rely upon a community of advisors to steer policy, plan for economic sustainability, and measure impact. Board members serve two-year terms; management teams dedicated to specific projects often help us identify future board members. Our newly developed Brain Trust will serve as a pool of intellectual capital from which we seek inspiration and guidance.
