TRU is seeking energetic and talented transit supporters to serve on our Board of Directors.
TRU’s board sets our policies and goals through strategic planning, ensures TRU has the financial resources to succeed, and is responsible for TRU’s legal obligations and organizational values. Board members are also important community ambassadors.
Board members are volunteers brought together by a shared commitment to improving our local economy and quality of life through improved public transit.
TRU is striving to develop a Board of Directors as diverse as the Detroit region. As such, we are especially seeking people with strong connections to the City of Detroit, Macomb County, and Washtenaw County, and public transit riders, along with people whose skills include financial oversight, fundraising, marketing, and organizational development.
Board member responsibilities include bi-monthly meetings, ambassadorship for the organization, participation in major TRU events, a significant contribution (individually determined), and a willingness to share time and talents for the common goal.
If you are interested in challenging yourself with this exciting opportunity, review our Becoming A Board Member document and contact me to learn more. Applications are due by November 20.
Please share this with anyone you believe would be a good contributor to TRU's growth as Detroit's transit advocate. Thanks!
We also have opportunities to help plan our 2015 Regional Transit Awards dinner! Our first major planning meeting will be Tuesday Oct 7 at 6:30pm. Let me know if you're interested and I'll send you more details.
