Description of Position

The Board of Directors have monthly regular meetings (2 hours) and operates according to the Carver Policy Governance framework, meaning that the Board focuses on strategy and oversight and delegates day-to-day management to staff. Additionally attendance is required at special meetings (approx. 1-3 per term). Board members are expected to sit in on at least one committee (ex. Presidential nominating committee, Board executive committee, Joint policy review committee, plus additional committees as the need arises). Attendance of the monthly GSA Council meeting is recommended but not required. While neither of these skills are strictly necessary, we are seeking people with not-for-profit experience and a familiarity with Robert’s Rules of Order. The total time commitment is at least 5 hours per month.
