A Special Volunteer Opportunity: Join our Board of Directors
The Foundation is soliciting volunteers to become Board Members and join our Board of Directors beginning in 2022.  This is a great opportunity to take an active role in our Foundation--providing your specific leadership and guidance to help the Foundation achieve its mission. Board positions are open to all members of the Foundation (active, reserve, retired and former Supply Corps officers), their spouses and members of the enlisted Supply ratings. 

Board Members serve a minimum three-year term, beginning each year.  The Foundation holds two annual Board Meetings in the Spring and Fall, though much of the Board's work and communication is managed virtually. You can view the Foundation’s current Board of Directors and Committees here

If you are interested in becoming a Board Member or have any questions about the Board of Directors, please contact the Foundation’s Executive Director CAPT (ret) Dan Pionk at or (202) 956-8229.
