The Board of Directors represent the interests of the “owners” — the community. The Board, acting as governors, is charged to protect that public purpose — to ensure that funds are used as responsibly and as effectively as possible.


  • To determine the organization's mission and purpose. It is the board's responsibility to create and review a mission statement that clearly articulates the organization's goals, means, and primary stakeholders served.
  • To select the Executive Staff. The board must reach consensus on the Executive Director and the Director of Operations responsibilities.
  • To provide proper financial oversight. The board must oversee the development of the annual budget and ensuring that proper financial controls are in place.
  • To ensure adequate resources. One of the board's foremost responsibilities is to provide the resources needed to fulfill the mission of the organization.
  • To ensure legal and ethical integrity and maintain accountability. The board is ultimately responsible for ensuring adherence to legal standards and ethical norms.
  • To ensure effective organizational planning. Boards must actively participate in an overall planning process and assist in implementing and monitoring the plan's goals.
  • To enhance the organization's public standing. The board should clearly articulate the organization's accomplishments, mission and goals to the public and generate support from the community.
  • To determine, monitor, and strengthen the organization's programs and services.  The board is responsible for determining which programs are consistent with the organization's mission and to monitor their effectiveness.
  • To support the Executive Staff and assess performance. The board should ensure that the Executive Staff have the support they need to further the goals of the organization.
