Founding OTW Board

The initial Board was formed from the respondents to a call for those willing to serve in the organization made in June of 2007. Board members were chosen by organization founder Naomi Novik on the basis of putting together a team with the particular set of skills and experience needed to set up the infrastructure of a nonprofit organization, including its bylaws.
