Board Member – Finance

Our boardAction Tank is a think tank that partners with artists to research and promote new public policy solutions in Cincinnati, Ohio.Action Tank has three program priorities:  policy promotion, civic capacity building, and technical assistance for resident-led efforts to effect positive local change.Action Tank's board:
  • Sets the organization’s mission and overall strategy and modify both as needed
  • Monitors management and hold it accountable for performance
  • Selects, supports, evaluates and (if necessary) replace the ED or CEO
  • Develops and conserves the organization’s resources (funds, property, social capital)
  • Serves as a bridge and a buffer between the organization and its environments, advocating for the organization and building relationships.
PositionThe board member responsible for finance should be excited to support a small but mighty new organization. Action Tank is a quickly growing organization that has already raised ten times in 2020 what it raised in 2019, and we are seeking a steady guide to help us ensure that our books are in order and that we have a solid accounting system in place.For now, our team is working remotely, so we do not have real estate to manage. Our expenses are mostly staff time, along with some program costs and contractors.
