Here you will find the materials that allow for the nomination of prospective trustees, who, if elected,  would begin serving July 1, 2023 

Please note the list of gifts, skills and experiences that we are most interested in adding to the Board. 


We seek diversity in:

  • vocation, with emphasis on:
    • advocacy
    • college president, preferably at an HBCU
    • CPA
    • financial advisor

    • HR, particular experience in benefits and employee wellness
    • race relations

Interested candidates should understand that the process will be most earnest in the early months of 2023, so if some time passes between conversations it should not be misinterpreted as a lack of interest on our part.  As you consider making a nomination, please help us identify individuals who hold significant leadership positions in the business, education, nonprofit and other professional fields both in the western New York region and beyond.
