Board of Directors: 2017

A Trustworthy Organization: ACTS is dedicated to the highest standards of financial stewardship and client service. As a Christian organization, we acknowledge that we are accountable not only to our donors and partners, but also to God.

For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.
2 Corinthians 8:2

ACTS is managed by an Executive Director who reports to a fifteen-member Board of Directors.  The Board is responsible for monitoring the effectiveness of our impact in the community, for fund-raising, and setting strategic direction.  Directors serve three-year staggered terms.  As shown below, we are fortunate to have so many different churches and businesses represented within Aiken County.  As noted, each member is tasked with supporting the Executive Director in a particular discipline.  We appreciate their involvement and benefit from their experience and insight in many ways.
