The governing body of Freedom’s Frontier is the Board of Trustees. Members are opinion leaders from throughout the area and have made financial investment in the organization in addition to using their influence to raise the needed funding to date. The role of this board is to provide governance to the organization and develop fundraising strategies to support its coordination, represent the national heritage area to the public and accept the ultimate legal authority for the organization. While the Board is keenly interested in the success of the heritage area, it yields to the partnership team to set programmatic and project priorities.
The Board of Trustees meets six times a year. These meetings are open to the public and are posted on the Freedom’s Frontier calendar.
