We strive for 100% board giving, but have no strict guidelines around financial contributions.
Board Member responsibilities include attendance of regular board meetings (average 8 per year), as well as teleconference meetings
and active electronic conversations as part of Board committees. In some years the Board has held additional meetings. Board
members also hold a fiduciary responsibility for management of organizational capital and ensuring appropriate filings with federal,
state, and local authorities consistent with the organization’s status as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The attendance policy allows
for removal if three consecutive meetings are missed without notice.
The Board of Directors has up to 17 voting members and a minimum of 9 members. Terms are for 3 years. Board positions require a time and energy commitment that should not be underestimated. Candidates are urged to consider personal priorities for the next year as well as the ways to contribute to the development of the organization.
