You’d be amazed at all the Providence Associate Advisory Board does to support, promote and provide vision for the Providence Associate relationship. This working board, made up of the Sisters of Providence and Providence Associates below, meets three times a year under the direction of the Providence Associate co-directors Debbie Dillow, PA, and Sister Sue Paweski, SP, and our General Officer Liaison from the Sisters of Providence, Sister Jeanne Hagelskamp. Each advisory board member belongs to a committee that leads efforts in areas such as spirituality, strategic planning, advancing the mission, Providence Circles and more. Each board member serves four years and may choose to renew for a second four-year term. When a board member rotates off the board, board members recommend a sister or an associate to replace them based on how the person’s gifts fit the placement being filled. First consideration is given to those who have expressed interest in serving on the board.

Are you interested in serving on the Providence Associate advisory board in the future? Email PAOffice@spsmw.org to let us know your interest.
