Alzheimer’s Association


ORGANIZATION OVERVIEW: The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading donor-supported voluntary health organization in Alzheimer research, care and support. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that results in progressive intellectual and functional deterioration. There are no known therapies to stop the progression of the disease. Average survival after the time of diagnosis is eight to ten years accompanied by progressively increasing disability.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: We are always seeking board members and committee members who focus on the vision, mission, and goals of the Alzheimer’s Association Midlands Chapter within their work, ensuring adequate resources meet the full mission of the organization. Opportunities include effective financial & organizational planning, assisting in the identification and cultivation of financial support, attending all board and committee meetings, chapter fundraising events and functions, serving at least one full three-year term, assisting the President and CEO in the development of chapter policies and procedures, and assessing the performance of the board goals and chapter leadership.
