If selected as a Sozo Children Associate Board member, you will be expected to serve a minimum of two (2) years and a maximum of three (3) years, after which a minimum of one (1) year “roll off” period is required before you may begin another term.  Additionally, a Sozo Children Associate Board Member is expected to annually fulfill the following requirements:

2.  Pay $75 in dues by February 16, 2016.
