Board of Directors

The BRACAC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of dedicated professionals and citizens who live in the ten counties of the Barren River Area and bring individual experience and knowledge together to help make the Center and its services a reality.

The Board of Directors held its annual meeting in July 2018. The Board reviewed its many accomplishments from the previous year, voted in a new Executive Committee, and discussed potential events in the upcoming year.

The Board continues to seek a diverse membership including regional representation, meets a minimum of eight times a year and supports the ever changing needs of a growing Child Advocacy Center. Thank you for your continued support!
