Council of Trustees

Our Council of Trustees is a community advisory body of civic volunteers dedicated to purposeful engagement in current and emerging regional priorities. Banyan Trustees play a vital role in the preservation and renewal of our humanitarian purpose. They further our mission, Transforming Lives, by pursuing activities and providing support to advance prevention, health, and well-being in the neighborhoods and communities we serve.

Our Trustees give us perspective, ensuring that our priorities, programs, and services are an accurate reflection of need in our community. They bring focus to the compelling health and social issues facing us as a community today — Healthcare reform, the plight of returning Iraq & Afghan Veterans and their families, the aging of our population, the needs of our youth, and the institutional need Banyan has for renewable sources of philanthropic support so that we can continue advancing the quality of care we provide to the South Florida community.
