Board of Governors

The Board of Governors of the CRA consists of volunteers from our community who meet on a regular basis to look at the long term goals of the CRA and to provide input and support to the Executive Director. In addition, the board consists of honorary board members that may not be involved in the long term planning, but have a unique talent or skill to share with the board. If you are interested in learning more about the Board of Governors or have any questions or comments that you would like to share with them,  please feel free to contact them through email at
