Acting as a dedicated member of a team the Board Directors are responsible for overall governance and stewardship of the organization. Board Directors are expected to participate in strategic planning processes to review purposes, programs, priorities, funding needs, and targets of achievement. Additionally, the board is responsible for ensuring financial responsibility by approving the annual budget and overseeing adherence to it.

The members of the Board are elected from the Society’s membership and report to the Board Chair who is also a Board Member.  Each Director is elected for a 3-year term. The term may be extended for two additional 3-year terms, therefore, a Director shall not exceed a 9-year term on the Board including Executive positions. The Executive Officers rotate through the Executive Office roles for two-year terms in each position.

Board Directors are expected to participate in at least one committee and are encouraged to act as chair of the committee if appropriate.

Each year the board supports and organizes some fundraising efforts throughout the year. Attendance at these events is encouraged but not mandatory.
