Autism Society San Francisco Bay Area Board Application
Thank you for your interest in the SFASA board! We are community members working together to advance the interests of the Bay Area’s growing autism community. SFASA is run by a working board, currently focusing on the burgeoning population of adults with autism and their many needs, including housing, supported living, day programs, employment and other factors. With exceptions for contracted work, the volunteer board performs the actual work of the nonprofit. We are currently seeking to add dynamic new members to our board. Terms run for 2 years, with a 3-term term limit under the current bylaws. Expectations include but are not limited to the following:
(1) Applicants must affirm to their support for SFASA’s Mission/Vision/Values
(2) Applicants must affirm a commitment to undertake volunteer tasks during their term (approx 1-10 hours per week). These tasks include but are not limited to:
- Treasury, bookkeeping, accounting
- Communications: website, newsletter, blog, social media, etc
- Events and conference planning
- Information & Referral
- Regional groups
- Policy advocacy
(3) Commitment to attend 5 board meetings annually, typically held from approximately 10.30am-1pm in Palo Alto, on Tuesdays in January, March, May, September, and November, in addition to various committee meetings.
(4) Autism Society of America requires SFASA to have a "give or get" policy. Our current policy is $500 per year, but based on best efforts and ability to pay only.
