To serve a formal role in the governance of MISA, per the MISA Charter. To be available to work jointly with MISA and faculty as needed on initiatives or joint fundraising for sustainable agriculture. To be availabe for advice to MISA Board or Committees. In general-- to hold MISA accountable to its mission and By-Laws.
