Board of Governors

WE WELCOME THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS

These long time friends and benefactors bring expertise from many fields
that will guide and benefit The Thalians and our fundraising efforts.

With deep gratitude,
The Thalians

Join the Board of Governors

We are proud to have achieved over sixty years of service to our community. We expect to continue our services, and expand them, well into the next fifty years, and we can use your help.

Members of the Board of Governors serve on other boards: business, charitable, political, and more. This experience is invaluable to The Thalians. We seek new ideas and new leadership to catapult our organization into the future.

Candidates are welcome. Each candidate should have a proven track record of success with a broad sphere of influence. Responsibilities include advising and assisting our Board of Directors regarding the ways and means of broadening the mission, funding of ongoing and new programs, and identifying new support sources. Term of membership is planned for three years, but can be flexible. There will be two meetings of the Board of Governors each year.

Governors will be asked to raise or contribute or render in services $25,000 a year. Many of our governors have far exceeded this request.

To get started and to join, please contact The Thalians at (818) 792-4510.
