Board of Directors


The next meeting of the Sandhills Center Board of Directors will be held Feb. 8, 2022, beginning at 7 p.m. Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Board is weighing options to conduct the meeting virtually, via WebEx, or to hold it in-person. A decision will be made closer to the Feb. 8 meeting date. We will communicate the details on this page and in the calendar section of the website as soon as possible.


Sandhills Center is governed by a Board of Directors that includes representatives from each county within our region.

The goal of the Board is to provide oversight of programs and help make sure quality and access to services remain high throughout our catchment area.

The Board of Directors meets at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. The meetings are held at the Sandhills Center administrative office, 1120 Seven Lakes Drive, West End, NC.

During monthly meetings, the Board of Directors accepts advice from the public, Sandhills Center staff and subcommittees. 

 For more information, contact Sherry Bynum, Clerk to the Sandhills Center Board of Directors.
