Board of Directors and Administration Team

Participants come each year and see mostly only the people who work with them each day. They may see some but not all of these wonderful people who work behind the scenes to run CASSA for the remainder of the year, so in case you want to know who they are, this is the list of the Board of Directors and the Administration Team. 

The Cassa Board of Directors is the group of dedicated people who work hard at making the CASSA summer programs run successfully. Some members have volunteered on the Board since CASSA's inception in 1993.
