Progress of CPR-Nevada Board Development


Progress of Advisory Board Committee Development


As the organization grows, so do its boards. This includes the Board of Trustees who oversee financial and fiduciary responsibilities of the PAC, and the Board of Directors who oversee the day-to-day operations and management of the National organization and individual State Chapters. Administratively, the minutia is managed by MSOplus, a division of Compassion Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit management services organization dedicated to Professional Education, Patient Advocacy and Healthcare Innovations that serve Categorically Complex, Terminally Ill and Underserved Populations. 

There are always positions available within the organization for volunteers, employees and managers who know how to get things done, and can follow rules.
