ABC Board of Directors

Board Statement about Organization’s Name
In the midst of the global health pandemic, we have witnessed a reawakening to the presence of systemic and institutional racism in our society. Spurred by a recent vote by the Baldwin Neighborhood Council, important conversations across the country, and our ongoing commitment to anti-racism work, our organization’s board of directors voted in June to renounce the racist legacy of Louis Agassiz.

To better align our name with our ongoing organizational anti-racist values and practices, the ABC Board is removing the Agassiz name from our organization. We will embark on a community-oriented process to develop a new organization name that better reflects our mission and values. For updates, please visit our website or social media channels.

About the Board of Directors
The organization has an 8-10 person Board of Directors. Directors are elected for two-year terms. The Board consists of parents of children in the programs, neighborhood residents, members of the local business community, and other community members committed to the mission of the organization. Board positions include Co-Chairs, Treasurer, and Clerk, and many board members serve on permanent and ad-hoc committees.

A nominating committee submits a slate of nominees to the Board and to the Baldwin Neighborhood Council each April. The slate is approved in May at the Annual Meeting.

We have a dynamic and engaged board of community members from different backgrounds, representing a wide variety of fields. With wisdom and experience grounded in parenting, civic activism, finance, architecture, real estate, education, counseling, and law, they are deeply committed to the organizational mission and approach the work with creativity and enthusiasm.

We are looking to fill positions on our board for 2023. If you’re interested in learning more, check the file below.
