The SAFE Alliance is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of experts in their fields, stakeholders, and community leaders – all passionate about the mission of SAFE. The work of the Board is largely accomplished through robust committees. The SAFE Board of Directors meets every other month or as needed, and is responsible for the vision, mission, and governance of the agency and the supervision of the Chief Executive Officer.
