The Board of Directors of any non-profit is charged with a major responsibility of overseeing the direction and development of that organization as it strives to meet the needs of the community. At The Brown Center for Autism, we were blessed to have a strong and diverse Board of Directors with representatives of both the professionals who serve families of children with autism, as well as the population we serve. We express our deepest gratitude for the generosity and service of each of our Board members who served The Brown Center over the years.
