Board Opportunity - Sunrise Community
Members of EMERGE are invited to be part of Sunrise Communities’ newly forming Advisory Board. Sunrise Community of Polk, Inc. is a non-profit organization which provides services to people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities. The organization is over 40 years old and has a strong infrastructure. The supporter group is an important extension to our community and its members.
As you may be aware; the state of Florida has been in a financial dilemma causing cuts to provider rates and services that individuals need to live productively in their community. This has caused intermittent services to be provided which negatively impacts families of individuals with disabilities, as this support allows them an opportunity not only for relaxation but to work and financially provide, which directly gives back to the community as a whole.
The expectations of the advisory board are an important process in which they develop ideas and implement those ideas that enable Sunrise to provide quality and consistent services. The group would have no fiduciary responsibility; however the board would be an important extension to Sunrise Community as a whole. The advisory board expectations would include monthly meetings, strategic planning, fund raising, community awareness, and a public speakers bureau. The advisors would assist in locating community supporters which could be monetary, volunteerism, therapeutic activities, and fundraising activities.
Please contact Ashley Green AGreen@sunrisegroup.org with Sunrise for more information about this great opportunity.
