Board Members

HBIDA’s working board is made up of educators, parents, diagnosticians, dyslexia therapists, advocates, physicians and others who are committed to promoting literacy throughout our city and surrounding communities.

HBIDA holds elections each November to add new and returning members to its board. Each member’s term lasts three years, and our members serve on various committees along with our Advisory Council Members.
