Advisory Board

USO Advisory Boards are volunteer organizations established by the USO to assist and support designated USO Centers in the U.S. and abroad. Advisory Boards are comprised of a limited number of select individuals, nominated by the local USO’s Executive Director and appointed by the USO Board of Governors. Appointment is based upon one’s dedication to the USO’s mission, community standing in the area served by the centers and the ability to generate substantial assistance and financial support for the USO’s mission.
