Board members have a legal and ethical responsibility to ensure that the organization does the best work possible in pursuit of its mission. As a member of the Leading Like a Lady board of directors, it is expected that you believe in the purpose of the organization, and will act responsibly and prudently as its steward.

Additional responsibilities and expectations for board members include but are not limited to:

COMMITTEES

Members will:

  • attend at least 90 percent of board meetings and prepare for these meetings by reviewing materials sent in advance via email by the Executive Director and/or Board Chair.
  • be an active member of at least one Committee or Task Force and will, if asked, be willing to take a leadership role.
  • be willing to spearhead individual fundraising initiatives and to share their professional expertise in a way that promotes efficiency and effective management of the organization.

DEVELOPMENT
