What does a trustee do?
A trustee safeguards the mission of Hitchcock Free Academy and guides its growth by contributing vital skills and experience in a variety of areas, including nonprofit administration, business, finance, marketing, historical preservation and maintenance. Trustees are expected to participate actively in committee work in their given area(s) of expertise. Trustees are also ambassadors of Hitchcock's programs, and enthusiastically share opportunities to experience its offerings with their network.
