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 bi-monthly meetings, lead or actively participate on a 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 Dartmouth 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 Dartmouth Cancer Center.
