The bishop has delegated authority for governance and strategy to an advisory board, comprised of members that he appoints at the recommendation of the Board Development Committee of the advisory board.
The advisory board is comprised of volunteers who come from a variety of backgrounds and are committed to providing excellent leadership, governance, and oversight so Emmaus House can excel at fulfilling its mission. To send a message to the advisory board, or to nominate yourself or someone else for membership, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
