Looking to get more involved in your community? Join a RISE Committee and help the organization achieve its vision to create a world free of sexual assault and intimate partner violence.

Board Committees

RISE’s Board of Directors has three standing Committees where the work of the board is accomplished- Internal, External and Governance. The Board Committees are an opportunity for community members to participate in the work of the Board without the full commitment required of a Board Member. Committee members are asked to attend monthly meetings, providing support and input.

Internal Committee

The purpose of the Internal Committee is to monitor issues of agency administration, finance and human resources.

External Committee

The purpose of the External Committee is to focus on fund development and donor cultivation, public relations, marketing and communications.

Governance Committee

The purpose of the Governance Committee is to ensure that the board fulfills its legal, ethical, and functional responsibilities through adequate governance policy development, recruitment strategies, training programs, monitoring of board activities, and evaluation of board members' performance.

Please email the Executive Director or call (805) 226-5400 for more information.
