Details on the Board:
As a board member for a not-for-profit, members volunteer their time and skills to direct our publishing operations and donations. Our shareholders are the public, and our profits are public good instead of dollars. Each board member is elected in by the existing board. Members agree to serve a term of one-year and may voice interest in being re-elected to their position by the board if desired when the board is preparing for the annual vote. Board of directors’ vote is held annually in February.
If you would like to voice your interest in becoming a prospective board member in the future, there is a handy form here: https://us15.list-manage.com/survey?u=443ad4da857ea54b3f38d84c0&id=95dd7b4050
A member of the board will contact you within 2 weeks of filling out the form to acknowledge your interest and ask any questions. Board members are not paid for the duties they perform as a board member of a Not-for-Profit.
What can we say about Rohit? Boy, can this guy write. Rohit originally joined the team as a data and research assistant, but it was soon clear that this guy was hiding some big talent.
There is no harder a worker than Suzon. As our digital researcher, Suzon spends his days finding valuable info and contact information that helps ADBP connect directly with organizations in need and retail partners in those regions to help lift people and the local economy that they live in, out of poverty.
