Board of Directors

BASE Camp is governed by a board of directors. The board meets monthly and oversees the role of the Executive Director, collaborates to establish and measure on strategic goals for the organization, and garners support for the organization within the community.


The BASE Camp board is comprised of committed, passionate members of our local community. We currently have two open board positions and are accepting applications. Board terms begin July 1. Board membership requires attendance of the monthly meeting, and serving on at least one committee each year. Time commitment is estimated at 3-4 hours per month. Interested community members should complete the Board Application. If you have questions about the board function or joining, please contact BASE Camp’s Executive Director, Seth Kelley,
