Board of Directors

Pines of Sarasota is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, which oversees management and has ultimate fiduciary responsibility. This dedicated group of civic leaders serves with distinction but without recompense, following a 69-year tradition of service to both Pines of Sarasota and to the larger community it serves.
