The executive committee of the Orthotic and Prosthetic Assistance Fund (OPAF) and the First Clinics has begun its annual search for nominations to the OPAF board of directors. The executive committee coordinates nominations to the OPAF board of directors and presents these nominations to the entire OPAF board each fall. The deadline to file nominations is 5 p.m. EST on Friday, July 31, 2009.
According to OPAF, nominees are needed for one to three board positions. Nominees should have an appropriate background, and a history of 501(c)3 nonprofit committee/volunteer work is preferred, but not required. Nominees should also be familiar with and dedicated to fundraising and have a strong commitment to the primary mission of the fund: to enable individuals served by members of the orthotic and prosthetic community to enjoy the rewards of personal achievement, physical fitness, and social interaction. Knowledge of and familiarity with OPAF and the First Clinics and events is strongly preferred.
