Board of Directors

Purpose and Governance

The Board of Director is the 501.3c required governing body of the Co-op Family Center that oversees the activities of the organization. The Board delegates the power of operation to the executive director. In order to fullfil its duty of oversight and fiduciary responsibility, the Board governs through the model of policy governance. In this model, the Board sets policies that outline high-level goals for the long-term future, and limitations on the means the director can use to fullfil those goals. Progress and performance of the organization is obtained through monitoring reports from the director (for a more complete description refer to the policy book). The Board is elected by the membership (enrolled families of the Co-op Family Center) and reports back to them once a year at the annual meeting, which is usually held at the beginning of the fall term (September / October).
