PIQUA – Are you interested in sharing your knowledge and skills to help your community? You can do this by becoming a board member for an organization that embodies a commitment to build educational and supportive partnerships, with people of all ages. They expand opportunities for individuals and families to increase their potential for change and growth in their lives. The Council on Rural Service Programs, a non-profit human service organization, is looking for community-minded professionals as candidates to join their Board of Trustees. The candidates should have a complex scope and understanding of operational systems for a large company. Skills in finance, program or business development, and community or public relations would also be a great benefit. Monthly meetings are held in Piqua. The agency administers grants and programs in a nine county area of west central Ohio that include Head Start, Early Head Start, Kids Learning Place, Help Me Grow, Gateway Youth Programs, and Achievement Center for Educational Success. Also there are volunteer programs; HandsOn West Central Ohio, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, and AmeriCorps for Entrepreneurial Success. If you live or work in any of the following counties (Auglaize, Champaign, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Preble, Shelby, and Van Wert) which are served by the Council on Rural Services and have an interest in being considered as a candidate, please call today. They are looking for leaders that want to help us achieve our vision of opening possibilities for people to live an enriched life of purpose. We continue to create and promote positive changes for people throughout the area; when people advance so do their families and communities. Please contact Shirley Hathaway, Executive Director, at (937) 778-5220 or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
