About Our Board

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is made up of people who work (without compensation) on behalf of you -- the Western New York community -- in governing the organization. In order to effectively meet the legal and moral obligations of governing an organization as large and complex as People Inc., the Board operates as a policy-making body, using the Policy Governance® model. The majority of the Board’s emphasis is placed on determining agency outcomes. We do this through establishing "ends" policies -- addressing which people's lives our organization should make a difference in, what types of differences, and at what cost or priority. Knowing your values about these areas will help us in creating expectations that are consistent with the desires of our community.
