Board Governance

Board Selection

Each year, the REACH Board selects members who reside within the foundation’s service area to fill seats on the 17-member board. Nominees can be identified in several ways. The REACH Board works to identify individuals with community and board governance experience, and an understanding of and commitment to health issues. Board members also are appointed by governmental bodies representing the Kansas Governor’s Office, Kansas Attorney General, and the county commissions of Allen, Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas. To qualify, individuals must live within the foundation’s six-county service area.

Interested individuals are encouraged to contact REACH President and CEO Brenda Sharpe for information on the nominations process.
