First Friday Network is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating networking opportunities for individuals and organizations who serve the senior community in Bexar County and the surrounding areas.

To further our mission, we hold networking meetings to allow members to develop relationships, form alliances, and make others aware of their own missions and services. We are governed by a volunteer board.

Our Board

The First Friday Network’s board is elected every year by the general membership. Former officers may serve as advisers to current officers, all of whom work under the structure of by-laws.

First Friday Network welcomes volunteers to assist in the board’s efforts to continually improve our service to our members and community.
