Lebanon Board of Directors

The Friends Board of Directors consists of individuals, donors, survivors and community volunteers who support the growth and mission of the Cancer Center.

Board members attend monthly meetings, lead or actively participate on a standing or event committee, assume board/committee leadership roles of Friends projects and activities, have an awareness of their community and are willing to network within that community on behalf of Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Board members become informed about Cancer Center programs and services, bring new members to the Friends at large and participate in fundraising activities of the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
