U.S.-African center seeks board members

The Center for African Peace and Conflict Resolution of Sacramento State is looking for new board members to help support the organization's mission: to promote positive communication and interaction between the U.S., the Caribbean and Africa.

Professionals with demonstrated accomplishments in disciplines such as health, education, business and marketing, government, environmental studies, public relations, journalism, international development and diplomacy are strongly encouraged to apply.

The board is responsible for the support and improvement of all organizational programs and projects, fundraising and outreach.

Board members serve a minimum tenure of three years and are expected to participate in the center's programs, committees and special events, which include conferences, workshops, lectures and visits by international dignitaries and scholars.
