Board of Directors


Members of the AEFI Board of Directors are drawn from a wide cross-section of the Amesbury community. Their collective talents and expertise bring much to our organization, and we are grateful for their service.

Board officers are elected annually, and the Board is always eager to accept new volunteers from the community. You do not need to sign on as a Board member to contribute your time and talent.
