Life Bridges Would Like to Extend a Special Thanks To Each and Every Member of Our Board of Directors
Every member of our board of directors is a key contributor in helping those we support. Without the time, work, and decisiveness of our board members, we would not have a sufficient array of tools, personnel, or local affiliates to provide a quality experience.
We thank each and every member of our board for their contribution to our collective mission.
The Mission of Our Board of Directors
A board of directors list of responsibilities is quite large. Here are just a few of the tasks that our board has to constantly address. It is the board’s responsibility to create and review a statement of mission and purpose that is all encompassing. They must also employ and supervise the Chief Operating Officer. The Board must reach consensus on the chief executive’s responsibilities and undertake a careful search to find the most qualified individual for the position. The board should ensure that the chief executive has the moral and professional support he or she needs to further the goals of the organization.
The Board must actively participate in long range planning and oversight of the implementation of those plans. The board’s responsibility is to determine which programs are consistent with the organization’s mission and monitor their effectiveness.
One of the board’s foremost responsibilities is to secure adequate resources for the agency to fulfill its mission. The board must assist in developing and maintaining the annual budget and ensuring that proper financial controls are in place.
The Board has a responsibility to develop prerequisites for candidates, orient new members, and periodically and comprehensively evaluate their own performance. The board is ultimately responsible for adherence to legal standards and ethical norms. The board should clearly communicate the agency’s accomplishments, and goals to the public in a way that garners community support.
