Current board members of TANC (2017 – 2018)
TANC is governed and managed by a board of directors. Board members are elected directly by Northern California Tibetan community members during community-wide elections held mostly during July 6 celebrations of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Birthday. Nominations are solicited and individual members also have the option of putting his or her name on the ballot. Community leaders make maximum effort to ensure a broad representation on the board in terms of age, gender, professional background, and experience.
Note: There are (currently) eleven board members (since March 11, 2017) and they each serve two year staggered terms. The board is led by a President appointed by the TANC board members themselves, and members meet at least once a month.
