Board of Directors

The Children’s Forum is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors with expertise in their respective disciplines and a commitment to early care and education as well as school-age services. They guide our vision and we are truly fortunate to have such a wonderful group of people who bring a unique perspective to our work. Their tireless endeavors are making a difference in the lives of young children.
