Leadership

Our Board

The Healthy Chesapeake Board of Directors is made up of community leaders who provide guidance and financial oversight to our program initiatives. 

The Board represents social service agencies, local businesses, neighborhood associations, civic groups, and city government. Board members serve a two-year term and are eligible for re-appointment. They play an important role in setting the direction of the non-profit with support from the Healthy Chesapeake Coalition. The Board also provides support for fundraising efforts and approves fund distribution for community development programs and projects that support a healthy Chesapeake.
