Responsibilities of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the governing body of SCIP.

Setting the policy for the organization.

This is done by:

  • Creating or updating the mission and vision statements.
  • Determining the organization’s programs and services.
  • Approving the strategic plan.
  • Monitoring the organization’s operations:
  • Hiring and periodically evaluating the organization’s Coordinator.
  • Approving the annual budget, annual report, etc.
  • Approving major contracts.
  • Documenting policies and decisions.
  • Preparing for and attending board meetings.
  • Researching and discussing issues before decisions are made.
  • Replacing and orienting board members when a vacancy arises.
  • Troubleshooting as necessary.
  • Serving as a public figure for the organization:
  • Advocating for the organization.
  • Legal obligations
  • Take reasonable care when making decisions for the organization
  • Act in the best interest of the organization
  • Act in accordance with the organization’s mission

The board of directors should not:

  • Concern itself with the day-to-day management of the organization.
  • Rubber stamp decisions. While the board should take the recommendations of the organization’s members into consideration, the board needs to be an independent decision-making body.
