Any organization taking on a project of this size and importance needs a strong board of directors. Here are the professionals donating their time and talent to our Pulliam Community Building Foundation
Unlike many organization, we do not have any staff members. We are a working board. This keeps our costs of operating to the bare minimum so that nearly all of our efforts go into the restoration of our community building.
If you would like to assist, please volunteer your time and talents in any aspect of the project.
Please note: Kathi Wright submitted her resignation from the board of our foundation on 12/14/17. She was elected to Loveland City Council. To avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest, Kathi resigned. We appreciate her hours of support in getting our community back into our community building.
