Board of Directors
This is a "working board".

Board members are encouraged to attend monthly Mingle Mixers (3rd Thursday of each month), coffee connections, occasional ribbon cuttings, and OCC sponsored events. It is estimated that each board member devote 2-5 hours of work each month to their OCC role.
