New board members sought

In the spirit of diversity, equity and inclusion, the Access Press Board of Directors seeks to expand its membership by three additional directors. Please indicate your interest to be considered for board membership by contacting Access Press at www.accesspress.org

Access Press isa 501 c 3 nonprofit. Board members are volunteers, with varying time commitments. The board holds one regular meeting each month, with other strategic planning and committee meetings as needed.

Newspaper expertise is not required to be a board member. A commitment to and interest in Minnesota’s disability community is welcomed. Board members can bring lived experience with disability, for themselves or a family member or friend. Experience with disability service organizations, corporations, small businesses or the legal profession are welcome.

Board members expected to take on the day-to-day activities of running a small community newspaper.

Like many other nonprofit newspaper boards, the Access Press board is typically most active with issues of newspaper promotion, policies and fundraising.  Other tasks may include working on events and special projects.
