Our Board of Directors

The board of directors at Prevention Action Alliance generously volunteer their time and expertise to lead Prevention Action Alliance so we can meet our mission of leading healthy communities in the prevention of substance misuse and the promotion of mental health wellness.  Their efforts and insight create policies that prudently govern our agency, manage our budget and finances, steward donations to the agency, hire our executive director, advocate for prevention and Prevention Action Alliance, and provide oversight to ensure we’re capable of living up to our mission.
