Staff & Leadership

DanversCARES is governed by a voluntary steering committee under a set of organizational bylaws that can be viewed on this link. DanversCARES_BYLAWS_May2012 The Superintendent of Schools and the Chief of Police are standing members of the steering committee. There is a community chairperson, a co-chairperson, fiscal representative from the coalition’s organizational sponsor, and a community member-at-large.  The Steering Committee works to guide the larger Community Coalition which meets the first Monday of each month at Danvers High School at 9:00 am. Levels of membership include core and active members and general supporters.
