Requirements
  • Directors are expected to be full members, or be willing to become a member at the start of their board term. Those able are encouraged to be 110% Plus members ($1,100 or more) and to donate to the endowment fund, as they are comfortable.
  • A board term is assumed to be 3 years although board directors are asked to recommit each year. Directors are often encouraged to serve consecutive 3-year terms. Terms begin in January, but transitioning directors are encouraged to join in 4Q of the prior year to ensure a smooth assumption of activities.
  • Directors are asked to attend 80% of monthly board meetings and signature events. There are 4 signature events during the year in addition to the board meetings. There are 3-5 additional events of a more social or educational nature, which you are encouraged to attend if appropriate for you. Board directors are expected to pay for the events they attend even as volunteers.
  • An annual Board retreat is held (usually a Sunday in February) and attendance is expected.
  • Each Director has a specific job description from which they execute their responsibilities (the "working" part of the board) as well as their governing role.  Time commitment varies from position to position on the board and ranges from 6-50 hours/month. The average is about 8-10 hours/month.
  • Directors are not ‘required’ to bring in more members to Impact 100 but we hope that your enthusiasm for Impact will spill over as you talk to your friends, family and work acquaintances about your passion. If you would like to host ‘spread the word’ events you are welcome to but it is not a requirement.
  • No public speaking is required of board directors, but certain board positions will entail such.
