Board directors serve a three-year term, and officers serve a two-year term in their respective roles.
“I am excited to be working with a very engaged group of board members committed to extending Junior Achievement’s reach and impact in our communities,” said Brodd. “The only things holding us back from filling all the requests for JA involvement in our schools are financial resources and classroom volunteers. I am confident that with the board’s able leadership and the tireless energy of the JA staff, we will be able to significantly reduce that gap.”
“Coming off one of our best years ever, the board leadership will strive to build on that momentum and help raise more money, recruit more volunteers, offer more programming, and serve more students than ever before,” said Bebee Bason Lee, president of JAENC.
