The Board is seeking individuals from a wide range of ages and communities, particularly those from Indigenous or equity-seeking backgrounds, persons with disabilities, and those who are Deaf and/or hard-of-hearing. Please contact our staff to discuss needed accommodation(s), such as ASL translation.
