Please join us in welcoming Jaré Akchin, Karl Analo, Ashley Bakelmun, Eira L. Corral Sepúlveda, and David Fording as Delta’s newest Board Directors!
Delta Institute’s governing Board of Directors provides oversight and management of Delta Institute. Board Directors serve up to two terms of three years each (for six years total) and participate in at least one of our three standing Committees: Development; Finance; and Governance and Nominating. Our Board adheres to best practices in nonprofit governance and signs an annual participation agreement outlining their roles and responsibilities to Delta Institute, as well as identifying any conflicts of interest that may impact their service.
