Board Directors and Committee Members

As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items. Ten Thousand Villages establishes long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. A founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization, Ten Thousand Villages sees fair trade as an alternative approach to conventional international trade.

Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh is an independent nonprofit that sells Ten Thousand Villages products and shares the company name, but the Pittsburgh board operates separately of Ten Thousand Villages US leadership. In addition to governance, the board is also heavily involved in many aspects of operations, including managing bank accounts, approving expenses, creating the annual budget, devising policies, implementing advertising and marketing plans, organizing events, pursuing grant opportunities, and more.

The board currently has openings for board directors and committee members with experience and expertise in the following:

  • Human Resources
  • Finance/Accounting
  • Marketing
  • Retail Operations
  • IT
  • Legal

The full Board of Directors typically meets on the third Wednesday of every month (except July and December) at 6:30PM. During normal operations, the meeting takes place at the store located at 5820 Forbes Ave in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood and regular in-person attendance is expected of directors. In an average month, board service will require 4-10 hours of directors.  Terms are three years and directors are not required to make financial contributions though they are expected to support fundraising initiatives.

Board committees meet as needed, typically once per month and often by telephone or video conference. There is not a term duration for committee members.
