Board of Directors

Board Structure

The board will be divided into two categories – Elected Directors and Advisory Directors.

Elected Directors

The elected directorships shall be based on the management of functional divisions required to operate the club. Currently, the proposed operational structure will have only five (5) divisions: Finance, Program Development, Communications/IT and Operations. One of these directors will be elected to also serve as Executive Director (president). The directors will serve two-year terms. The Directors will meet six times a year and meet with their functional group members monthly. These are strictly volunteer positions and there is no compensation.

Advisory Directors

Advisory Directors are elected by the board to provide substantial support to the organization/board and need not be members of the club.  These positions provide strategic, consulting or sensitive support to the board. The Advisory position is elected by board so can come to term any time during the year. There are no specified Advisory Board term limits nor do we recommend any term limits.

The board can maintain a maximum level of nine (9) board members – elected Directors are limited to a minimum of five (5) and a maximum of seven (7). Advisory Directors will be limited to a minimum of two (2) and a maximum of four (4).
