What does the board of directors do?
Board members review financial documents, check legal filings, and ensure that the organization is running ethically. Overall, the board makes sure that the organization is working to fulfil its mission. Some tasks the board does are monitoring chapters to ensure their growth and transparency by hosting audits. The audits range from two times a year to once a week depending on the status of the chapter. The board is also involved in the recruitment process.
What is the relationship between the board of directors and the officers?
The management team (us :)) is completely separate from the board. For example, the management team’s president is in charge of deciding who does what, and how exactly we get large tasks done. In contrast, the chair of the board of directors leads the board in large, abstract decisions, like how to fulfil the organization’s mission.
