Each chapter within the Northwest Region also has a volunteer Board of Directors which ensures that the chapter is meeting the needs of their communities and acting as an effective and efficient steward of our donors’ contributions. This group develops the vision for each chapter and determines the policies that guide decisions.

A regional leadership team as well as chapter management staff members are responsible for ensuring that all individuals have access to quality Red Cross services and programs that adhere to our mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
