Board of Directors

Our board of directors is responsible for ensuring that Health Forward leadership, advocacy and resources are used to further our missionBoard members are selected by the Community Advisory Committee and serve for a term of three years.

The 21-member board of directors meets once per quarter. Committees include:

  • Audit
  • Ad Hoc Equity
  • Ad Hoc Permanent Home
  • Executive
    • Compensation Subcommittee
  • Finance and Investment
  • Governance
  • Program and Grants

The Health Forward board of directors has strong commitment to integrity and open meetings. All who join the organization as staff or board members are asked to declare any conflicts that would compromise the ability to be objective in decision-making. While we welcome members of the community who have ties to our grant work, there will be restrictions on those board members’ ability to vote on or discuss any items that would constitute a conflict of interest. No board member can benefit financially from any grant work of Health Forward.

All Health Forward board members are required annually to complete and submit an Attestation and Statement of Personal Interests, which is outlined in the Health Forward conflict of interest policy, found in Appendix A of our bylaws.
