Board of Directors

As a non-profit, Holden Village is governed by a 20-member board of directors whose role has been vital yet evolving over the Village’s history of more than 50 years. The board’s self-management policies require board members to “emphasize outward vision rather than internal preoccupation.” Board responsibilities include selecting executive directors, approving an annual budget, establishing policy and electing members to fill board vacancies. Board members serve four-year terms and are limited to three consecutive terms, or 12 years, of service. The board meets twice a year. Current board members are:
