Responsibilities of Board Members

Board members are usually enthusiastic about the organization they serve. They want to fulfill their legal responsibilities to advocate for the work of your organization and to embody the mission of the organization and serve as loyal ambassadors. There are other obligations they should consider.

They must be open to differing opinions and engage in productive discussions. It is essential that the board meets its goals in a coordinated way. The board is a collective, and the chair is accountable for keeping everyone on track with their duties.

The board is responsible to actively recruit and select new members. The most successful candidates are those who bring additional skills, expertise and previous experience to the table. Boards should also be sure that their job descriptions are in line with the qualifications required.

The board should also aid new members to get acquainted quickly. This can be accomplished by providing information on orientation as well as advanced preparation for meetings, a clear flow of communication, and educational opportunities.

Finally, boards should set term limits. This will prevent members who are unhappy from feeling overwhelmed or suffocated by their workload. The majority of your board’s work should be accomplished through committees. It is essential that board members know the committees and how they feed back into the board.

The board should be aware of legal obligations and regulations. This includes state-level “Sunshine Laws” as well as laws governing how non-profit organizations conduct their business and make decisions. Boards need to educate themselves about these issues to avoid costly legal issues.
