Board of Directors

ROCK is governed by a community Board of Directors. The membership of the board is drawn from citizens either living or working in the community. The board strives to reflect a broad cross-section of the community and a diverse number of viewpoints and experiences. Efforts are made to ensure that there is a balanced, equitable representation from business, professional, ethno-racial, and other groups located in the community and served by the agency.
