All Board Members serve three-year terms but are eligible to continue serving for up to five consecutive terms. We believe this optimizes the gifts, talents, experiences and energy of our team while ensuring a graceful, healthy rotation of leaders. When an individual is stepping off of the Board, we appreciate the Board’s partnership in identifying new candidates who will infuse the team with new ideas and energy. Service on SOAR Special Needs Board is without remuneration except for administrative support, travel, and accommodation costs in relation to the Board Member’s duties.
