Apply to join our all-volunteer Board of Directors
We are looking for those interested in joining our Board of Directors.
Applications must be submitted via email no later than April 7, 2019.
Due to our desire to keep our relationships with our members at the forefront, we have asked our pro bono attorney, Scott Filmore, to do the initial review of applications. He will then pass qualified candidates on to the board members for further review. Please submit your resume and application to Scott Filmore using the email address provided on the application.
Applications are open to everyone! You do not have to be a patient. We just ask that you be willing to take extra time in learning more about myositis and the related complications and patient/caregiver experiences.
