Board Service

Complete a Board and Committee Interest Form!

The Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource Center is fortunate to have a group of engaged, passionate, and diverse members who help steer the strategic vision of the organization, ensuring a sustainable future and aligning with the priorities of the city of Indianapolis and our neighborhoods.

Board Service is a 2-year term that can be extended to three consecutive terms of 6 years total. Board members are traditionally slated in late summer and officially begin service at INRC's annual meeting; however, we welcome interest forms year-round!

Meetings are bi-monthly; they are held every other month (on even-numbered months), on the 4th Monday at 6 p.m. During the pandemic, meetings have begun at 5:30pm and are held via zoom.

INRC’s Board of Directors steers the strategic vision of the organization towards a sustainable future. The Board adopts governance and financial management policies, ensures that INRC has adequate resources to advance its mission, and shares INRC’s values of Asset-Based Community Development, collaboration, community engagement, developing talents, empowering others, and inclusion and diversity

Board member responsibilities include participation in bi-monthly board meetings and active involvement on one committee. Terms are two years.

We are currently recruiting for diverse leaders with expertise in the following areas:

  • Fundraising
  • Marketing/public relations
  • IT/Technology: hands-on expertise
  • Legal
  • Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
