Two different types of boards provide oversight and advice for the work of New England Donor Services. The Board of Trustees (which also serves as the Board of Trustees for New England Organ Bank and LifeChoice Donor Services) is responsible for the governance, overall direction and financial stability of the organization. The Advisory Boards (one for each OPO) provides advice and makes recommendations regarding clinical protocols, quality systems and policies.
