Board of Directors

The Board

The Upper Room has an exceptional group of community leaders that make up its Board of Directors. From all walks of life, businesses and levels of involvement, our Board actively guides The Upper Room in areas of financial management to legal matters and marketing communications. The Board's annual Family Matters Auction is the major fundraising event each year that generates much needed dollars towards The Upper Room's funding.
