The Associate Board (AB) is a group of dedicated young New Yorkers who are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of individuals touched by cancer. The mission of the Associate Board is to promote awareness of Gilda’s Club NYC in the community it serves through philanthropic initiatives and volunteer service.
Interested in Becoming an AB Member?
Please contact Michelle Ramlochan for more information about becoming an Associate Board member.
Don’t have time for a full commitment on the AB or is the AB not currently accepting new members? Join the Friends of the Associate Board (or FAB)! FAB members receive all AB and Gilda’s Club communications, invitations to events, and have opportunities to volunteer alongside the AB, without the full board commitment. FAB members can also have the opportunity to be wait-listed to join the AB when an opening on the board occurs.
The AB is currently at capacity with 35 members and accepting applicants for the wait list.
Associate Board Events
