Board & Advisors

Board & Advisors

Members of the Des Moines Water Works Park Foundation Board of Directors serve in a voluntary capacity. They represent both a cross section of park users and the next generation of community leadership. To successfully complete a project of this size and scope and to create a template for implementing future large community initiatives, the Board is surrounded by an experienced group of advisors. These advisors mentor, support, and serve as a sounding board for the Board of Directors and staff.
