Cafe Nordo's Board of Directors is a diverse group of professionals from many fields including technology, law, film, food, wine, marketing, fundraising, and banking. The Board meets monthly and maintains frequent email discussions; board members are elected to three-year terms. The Board advises and supports the staff in fundraising, programming, marketing, PR, finance, and the website. Board membership is a demanding role that asks for a serious commitment, but also provides great joy in supporting the founders' vision for Cafe Nordo.
