Board of Directors

Members of the Friends of Tanzania Board are all volunteers. About half are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, others are Tanzanians, and others lived and/or worked in Tanzania or have traveled to Tanzania. A board term is two years with the option to serve a second two-year term. The FOT board can have as many as 14 members and the retiring president has the option of serving one year as Immediate Past President. The Board holds an annual planning retreat in February, and usually has eight other Board Meetings a year. Board Meetings are held in Washington DC, with the option to join the meetings by conference call. Each member serves on at least one of our committees.

We all appreciate this opportunity to work together to foster connections between the US and Tanzania, and to support community development in Tanzania. If you would like to help FOT in any way this year we would be glad to have you. Please contact us through to offer your assistance.
