Our Executive Board

The Seven Oaks Executive Board are center members who are elected by the center council/ membership to hold office and make decisions on behalf of the membership. The center council and executive board work to assist staff in accomplishing the center's mission. Elections are held in June and officers are sworn in our annual council meeting. All center members are highly encouraged to attend the bi-monthly council/membership meetings to share their ideas, express their opinions and vote on financial matters. A lunch is usually served at Noon followed by the council meeting at 12:30 pm. All attendees are eligible for a $50 restaurant gift card which is raffled off at the end of each meeting. Consider making a difference at Seven Oaks and join our executive board! The board meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at 1:00 pm. Interested in running for the board?
Talk with staff or the council president.
