Meet our Board

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. The success of a non-profit is tied to the sound leadership of its Board. At The Brown Center for Autism, we are 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. Our Board brings a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and dedication to the planning and oversight of our programming and organization. We express our deepest gratitude for the generosity and service of each of our Board members.
