Board of Directors

    Ability Online has a diverse and dedicated volunteer Board of Directors drawn from all walks of life. They share the dream of making Ability Online a place like no other, and they work hard in all kinds of ways to make that dream come true. They keep their eyes on the prize of continually improving the service we offer to our members. Board meetings are animated discussions full of good ideas that are limited only by the realities of time and money. We’re working on those!
