Board of Directors

Our board of directors makes important decisions about the goals, governance, and strategic direction of Community Involvement Programs (CIP). They are a group of individuals who care about sharing our mission and vision.

If you care about bettering the lives and protecting the interests of individuals with disabilities, traumatic brain injury, and severe and persistent mental illness, why not consider volunteering for one of our board committees? You can learn about this and other volunteer opportunities.
