Board of Governors

We convene New Memphis Governors twice each year for an infusion of fresh insight into New Memphis’ work. We count on our Governors for thought leadership and advocacy. The Governors complement the Trustees, a body of New Memphis graduates who meet five times a year and have direct fiscal oversight of the organization.
