"The Associate Board is set up with direct links to our organization’s Board of Directors, providing AB members access to seasoned, respected business leaders, while simultaneously assuring both groups are working toward the same goals. Our Associate Board chair serves as a non-voting member of and liaison to our general Board, attending regularly scheduled meetings. Moreover, the AB has a committee structure that mirrors the Board of Directors’ structure and, at its meetings, has opportunities to meet and hear from Gilda’s Club staff, volunteers, and members. It really is an organization committed to professional development."— Hayley Levy
"The Associate Board's success is the direct result of having a connected membership base. While there are many reasons to join an associate board or young professionals group (networking, camaraderie, etc.), our AB members share a special connection to Gilda’s and/or the mission, which has brought them to us and keeps them motivated to serve. I am excited for what this group will accomplish in the coming years – and proud to have been a part of building an organization with staying power.— Anne Fletcher
