Our Board

“An effective board of directors is a board that has diversity within its members and diversity with its talents.”
– Jeremy Barlow, Board Effect

“Board members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as by making sure the nonprofit has adequate resources to advance its mission.” . . . from the Council of Nonprofits

At Miss B’s Board members are advocates and ambassadors for the organization and believe deeply in our mission to change the face of poverty in Indian River County through education. They guide the organization through long-term strategic planning, promote efficiency and the implementation of best practices, safeguard financial sustainability, as well as shape our culture and our success. We are indebted to all Board members, past and present for their service to the children of Indian River County.
