Honorary Board Membership

As a member of WPLN’s Honorary Board of Directors, you will have a unique opportunity to help change our nation’s political landscape by helping to empower women of all backgrounds to pursue a journey in public service & become more civically-engaged in their communities.

The skills, background, & experiences of each Honorary Board Member are highly-valued by WPLN’s leadership. From time to time, you may be asked to: provide input on WPLN’s various state-based or national programming & messaging, lend your name to fundraising efforts in order to help ensure WPLN is well-funded to accomplish its mission, & potentially activate your various networks as a way to help raise WPLN’s national profile.
