Board of Directors Application (2024-2027)
The Role of a Board Member
Board Members are recruited for a variety of reasons. Some individuals are talented fundraisers and are valuable to nonprofits for that reason. Others bring significant industry experience, credibility, and/or prestige to an organization. Whatever the reasons for service, the principal role of the Board Members is stewardship.
The Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for the management of the organization. This requires active participation. People who do not have the time to regularly participate would not be a suitable fit for a working Board. One of the most important functions of the Board is to ensure all resources and efforts are focused on the organization’s mission.
As a starting point, every Board Member should have an adequate understanding of the organization's programs, support groups, scope of advocacy, and membership. Board Members should be familiar with the organization's Bylaws and with Robert’s Rule of Order procedural guide for conducting meetings.
The Board meets monthly on the last Tuesday at 6:00 p.m., and meetings are typically one hour in duration. Our committees meet monthly and the Board communicates frequently via electronic means (e.g., phone, text, email, etc.).
