Board Member (Volunteer)
The International Dyslexia Association, Upper Midwest Branch (IDA-UMB) supports individuals with dyslexia and related, language-based learning disorders, as well as their families and educators. One of 46 IDA branches worldwide, we have been serving the areas of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Manitoba, Canada for nearly 45 years.
A 501c3 nonprofit organization, IDA-UMB is the region’s definitive resource of information related to dyslexia, language-based learning disorders and literacy acquisition. We strive to increase awareness and understanding of these disabilities, encourage early and accurate diagnosis, advocate for the use of scientific, research-based instruction and to bridge the social, educational or cultural gaps to improve language acquisition for the success of all learners.
IDA-UMB is seeking individuals with an interest in learning disabilities and literacy to serve on our Board of Directors. As a board member, you will have the opportunity to set organizational policy and ensure its continuity; carry out short and long-term planning efforts; and help in the area of fund development to build our organization’s financial stability. Our board meets 6-8 times/year. As a working board, committee involvement is also required.
Currently, we are seeking to recruit a diverse array of professionals to our board. We desire individuals with experience in (but not limited to) advertising and marketing, social media, and recruitment skill sets.
