Red Cross seeks board members

The Southeast Minnesota Chapter of the American Red Cross is seeking volunteers to serve on its Board of Directors.

Interested individuals must live in one of the 12 counties served by the southeast Minnesota chapter — Mower, Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Le Sueur,  Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha, Waseca, and Winona. New board members will be elected in June for a term of three years beginning July 1.

Chapter board members serve as volunteer leaders of the American Red Cross at the local level. Board members are expected to serve as advocates for the organization, leveraging personal networks to energize their community to support the American RedCross.

Chapter board members also partner with and provide guidance to the chapter executive in developing and monitoring local strategies to deliver mission related services, meet goals, and along with the Chapter executive, be recognized as the “Face of the Red Cross” in their communities.

For more information, contact Melanie Tschida, executive director, at 507-287-2254 or melanie@redcross-semn.org by May 15.
