Governance

As a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization, Women for Sobriety, Inc., is governed by a Board of Directors. As with all non-profit corporation boards, the WFS Board’s primary purpose is providing policy and financial oversight to ensure that donated funds are spent in a prudent, efficient manner consistent with the Mission Statement. Board members also help with fundraising, special projects, and other organizational initiatives that contribute to mission fulfillment. The Board is composed primarily of women who have recovered using the New Life Program, but may also include other interested specialists. You can learn more about serving on the WFS Board and the application and selection process in our Board Recruitment Packet.

If you are interested in serving on our Board of Directors, start by filling out the Volunteer Application and select option 9 on the task list (Board of Directors). Like all Boards, we are particularly interested in women with specialized knowledge that will contribute to healthy business development in our sector, such as financial expertise, marketing and outreach experience, legal knowledge, social services or professional drug and alcohol counseling training, healthcare administration, and other skilled fields.
