The Autism Society of Wisconsin is looking for skilled and motivated candidates to join its Board of Directors. Directors commit to at least a three year term providing support to the organization through board meetings and committee work. Candidates should be willing to provide 2-4 hours of work per month on top of quarterly board meetings and monthly committee meetings.

The Board is particularly seeking candidates from its 53 county service area, with a connection to the autism community, who also have skills/expertise in the following areas: human resources, legal, advertising/marketing, technology, finance, fundraising, business/corporate leadership, etc. The organization encourages candidates who would increase board diversity, including representatives of a diverse racial or ethnic background, geography, and professional background. Individuals with autism are encouraged to submit. The Board will make appointments based on strategic interests, geography and demographic diversity.

Those interested should submit a resume and a written response to our Candidate Questionnaire to Kirsten Cooper, Executive Director, and Robert Johnston, President,
