Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic Board of Directors helps chart the chapter's course. They contribute a vast array of experience and skills that help maintain our status as the nation’s largest wish-granting organization.

As a whole, the board determines the chapter’s mission and vision. It selects, evaluates and supports the president and chief executive officer. The board also protects the chapter’s assets, enhances its public standing, ensures accountability, maintains legal integrity and assesses its own performance.
