Our Board and Leadership

Board of Directors

As a team of business and civic leaders, The Julian Center’s Board of Directors generously give of their time and expertise to fulfill our mission. Each member commits to serve a three-year term; many have served more. All are volunteers.

  • "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover."
    Mark Twain
