Board of Directors


Executive 2023

Joe Dzurilla - President 

Joe is a valuable member of the SBHASA, formerly serving as President of SBHASA and past Casino GM.  Joe's beautiful daughter, now 21 years old, currently lives in Slovakia.  She was born with Spina Bifida and is the reason Joe first became a member - so he could learn more and become an advocate for this disability.

Joe's other passions include his two amazing little dogs (Romeo and Leo), skiing, hiking, socializing, travelling, and running.
