Responsibilities of Board Members

Board members are usually passionate about the organization they represent. They want to fulfill their legal obligations to advocate for the work of your organization as well as embody the mission of the organization and be faithful ambassadors. There are other duties they have to take into consideration.

They should be open to diverse views and engage in productive discussions. This is essential to ensure that the board is able to accomplish its goals in a cohesive manner. The board is a group, and it is the chair’s job to ensure that everyone is on the same page.

The board’s job is to proactively recruit and select new members. The best candidates are those who bring additional skills, expertise and experience to the table. Boards should also make sure that job descriptions include the necessary qualifications.

The board should also assist new members in getting up to speed quickly. This can be achieved through the provision of orientation materials and advanced planning for meetings, and clear communication.

Last but not least boards should set the limits of their term. This will prevent members who are unhappy from feeling overburdened or overwhelmed by the work. The majority of your board’s work should be done in committees. It is important that board members know the committees and how they feed back into the board.

The board should be well-versed in legal responsibilities and regulations. This includes laws that govern how non-profits conduct business and make decisions as well as “Sunshine Laws”, which are state-level laws. Boards need to be educated on these issues to avoid costly legal issues.
