The Board of Directors of Pacific Bamboo Resources are our resourceful ambassadors and who are passionate about our unique mission.

The Board meets quarterly and works together between meetings (often via internet conference call), and assumes duties of reviewing, approving, and implementing organizational policies, overseeing fiscal management, and contributing to strategic fundraising campaigns to support the fulfillment of the PBR mission. The Executive Director plays a key role in supporting the knowledge and capacities of members, and provides continuity to sustain organizational culture and direction as Board membership terms transition and change.

PBR is honored to have the following individuals serving terms as members of the Board of Directors.
