Join our Board

Hip Donelson has multiple ways to become involved in our organization.  Hip Donelson is a 100 % volunteer run operation, we depend on the generousity of volunteers to guide our growth, perform the “boots on the ground” work of our programs and support the organization financially.  Hip Donelson was started as a Facebook Group…a group that came together to make Donelson a better place.  The community continues to work together as we grown and mature as an agency.

Hip Donelson is governed by a board of directors.  Board members oversee the strategic plan, approve expenditures, chair our community programs and much more.  Each board member has a vote in how the agency is governed. Board members are expected to attend all board meetings (6 standard meetings a year), as well as participate in events, fundraising and other high profile activities.

Also important to the agency are our advisory committee’s.  These committees are chaired by a board member and are extremely important to guiding our future.  Advisory Committee members generally meet via email or Facebook secret group as needed.  Current standing committees include (click on any committee for a description of that committee:

Finance Committee
