Board of Directors

The Board plays a critical role in guiding and supporting Eskolta’s future growth and direction. The board meets four times a year in New York City.

Every board member sits on at least one of the board’s three committees:

  • Operations Committee oversees finances and governance.
  • Executive Committee advises and contributes to major strategy decisions and hires, and evaluates the Executive Director.
  • Resource Development Committee oversees fundraising and communications strategy.
