Board Responsibilities & Structure

Project details

What we need
  • Document outlining relationship of board to your organization, including its role, responsibilities, and structure
  • Document defining the roles and responsibilities of individual board members, including empty seats if applicable
What we have in place
  • We currently have by laws and a conflict of interest form, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a organizational logo, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $7,248 , allowing us to cover expenses for program insurance cost

We need a package that is given out to new members that will explain expectations like raising money and attendance requirements. This will give us a pathway for better results
