Board of Directors

The Board of Directors for the Pinnacle Winds has been formed to deal with both the local needs of function and with the national implications of the mission. We meet once every six weeks, and meetings last no more than one hour. We are always on the look out for potential board members. Membership is based upon reputation and possession of certain desirable skills.
