Thrivent Member Network Mid-Atlantic Region

Our Leadership Team

Leading Thrivent. Serving Our Membership.

Thrivent is a membership organization of Christians, and our clients are our owners. This means our leaders work in the best interest of our membership – not third-party shareholders, like publicly traded companies. It also means that clients with a benefit membership can have a voice in determining who will lead the organization, by voting in the annual election for the Thrivent Financial Board of Directors. As the organization’s supreme governing body, the board focuses on serving the interests of the membership, both now and into the future. The board establishes and promotes Thrivent’s purpose and oversees major business decisions. It also works with leadership to assess and manage risk.

Your Thrivent Member Network Board

Before we introduce your Thrivent Member Network board, it might help to know how the members are elected and what’s expected of them. Each Thrivent Member Network elects regional board members during the same time and through the same process as Thrivent’s national board election. The Thrivent Member Network regional board is made up of Thrivent members. The board provides leadership and strategic insights to help carry out Thrivent's mission on a local level. If you’re a member, you can have a voice in making a meaningful choice by voting in the elections for the Thrivent Member Network board. Now … we’re pleased to introduce the Thrivent members who will serve you as part of the Thrivent Member Network regional board.
