The board is composed of 17 members who have knowledge of and commitment to refugees and immigrants. LIRS believes strength is found in diversity and that refugees and immigrants need a voice at the table of influence. All branches of the Lutheran Church, as well as other denominations, are represented on the board. There are also three former refugees or first generation immigrants on the board. The LIRS president is an ex-officio member of the board.
LIRS is currently seeking nominations for prospective board and committee members who are committed to our mission, share our core values, and are prepared to dedicate themselves in this service. We invite Lutherans and others to consider joining us. All directors must be at least 18 years old.
