What Does the Board Do?

The board of directors is the governing body of a nonprofit. Individuals who sit on the board are responsible for overseeing the organization’s activities. Board members meet monthly to discuss and vote on the affairs of the organization. Board members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as by making sure the nonprofit has adequate resources to advance its mission. Board members are encouraged to participate in sub committees that play to the strength and talents of each board member. Board terms are 3 year terms with an opportunity to renew after three years.

Sub Committees:
  • Executive (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Past President)
  • Finance
  • Fund Development
  • Community Engagement
