As many of you may remember from the movie “Paper Tigers,” Walla Walla, WA is one of the pioneers in applying the seminal information of the ACEs study toward greater community resilience. This work at the community level has helped CRI build a nationally recognized training program. Conversely, what we learn from our national audiences goes back to benefitting our community work. The two are inseparable and require a type of open-minded board leadership that supports and drives forward this unique approach.
Only diverse board representation can ensure that the history of trauma science is honored while fresh ideas contribute to mediating the collective trauma we are facing now and will for some time.
The board meets once a month for about two hours on Zoom and may occasionally engage in additional working sessions to tackle particular challenges.
If you are passionate about sharing and implementing best practices on trauma and resilience work, serving on a board may be a great way to contribute and expand your expertise.
