Interested in Joining the Board of Directors?
As a Community Action Agency, Semcac has a unique governing body. The Semcac Board of Directors is required by federal law to have representation from three sectors: 1/3 represent consumers; 1/3 represent public officials; and 1/3 represent private community organizations. Each of Semcac’s seven primary service area counties, including Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Houston, Mower, Steele and Winona is allowed three representatives, one from each of these sectors: consumer representatives, private sector representatives, and public officials.
Persons interested in serving on the Semcac Board of Directors may request more information by contacting Doug Grout at (507) 864-7741 or firstname.lastname@example.org
