The purpose of the Rutger Hauer Starfish Association Board is to provide advice and knowledge in many different fields. The people on our Board have expertise ranging from the scientific to the technical, from the philosophically impossible to what is possible and deeply needed. Their experience and skills are vital to our charity goals.

Our organization intends to be practical. Its Advisors come from different walks of life and as such they add a wider spectrum and provide strength to Starfish. They enable us to recognize opportunities in advance with which the Board of Directors members may not yet be familiar.

More importantly, they are people of experience in their fields who support our common goals by volunteering their assistance. Last but not least, they share a deep concern for all people struck by HIV/AIDS.

The Rutger Hauer Starfish Association's Board is one of our treasured assets.
