Meet TRI’s Board Members
Founder, Board Member
Amanda Shaw Newsome
What does the TRI Board Do?
The TRI Board is critical to our organization. Its members support our Executive Director (ED) and staff, providing mission-based leadership and strategic governance. While day-to-day operations are led by our ED, the Board’s relationship with her is a partnership, and the involvement of the Board is both critical and expected. We are committed to building a Board that represents diversity in all forms, including racial, ethnic, age, lived-experiences, LGBTQ, etc. We anticipate board members will attend bi-monthly meetings and, on an as-needed basis, support:
- Leadership, governance, and oversight
- Fundraising and resource development
- TRI’s public image
- Strategic and organizational Planning
- Fiduciary oversight and financial management
