|Purpose/Rationale||The role of a Trustee is to serve as a trusted advocate of the Center, to promote the values and mission of the organization, and most importantly, to ensure the Center has the resources it needs to achieve the important mission of empowering people to secure their online life with education and awareness programs in the global community|
