Board Member Application

All prospective board members should be mindful of the seriousness of serving as an officer on a nonprofit board of directors. The collective board, individual directors/trustees, and volunteers owe fiduciary duties to the nonprofit organization with which they serve.

Exercising fiduciary duties means that board members have duty to act with care and in the best interest of the organization and remain loyal to its mission as opposed to acting in their own interest. The board of directors, as a body, must be on one accord and work to promote the nonprofit’s mission as set forth by the executive director (This is a remote volunteer board member position).
