The MIND Foundation’s PAC is a representative board with special initiative and information rights that advises the MIND Foundation’s leadership team on matters related to organizational development, strategy, projects, and staff.

The PAC will consist of 2 representatives from each of our three membership groups: Students, Friends, and Professionals, and six elected representatives from the MIND Foundation staff. This amounts to a total of 12 representatives in the PAC that elect one chairperson.

At present, the PAC is comprised of only 9 individuals with the remaining three to be elected in June.

If you are a member of the category Professionals or Friends, please consider running as a candidate and represent your membership group in the PAC.
