Board of Directors

The Northwest Autism Center is governed by a group of community professionals, some of which have been with us since the inception of our organization.  Each member is dedicated to achieving our vision, and volunteers their time, resources and expertise to support our mission. No two members are truly alike and each brings their unique experiences to the team.  We are pleased to have such a forward thinking and supportive board; their sound stewardship provides a strong foundation for our work.
