The FCCANYS Board of Directors governs the overall execution of the organization’s mission. Principally, the Board manages organizational finances and sets long term priorities for professional development programs and community outreach. Overall, the members of the Board contribute the organizational, educational, management, legal, and financial skills needed to ensure organizational stability.
The Board of Directors has at least 10 voting members. Terms are for three years.
Board Member responsibilities include attendance at three in-person meetings per year, as well as teleconference meetings and active electronic conversations as part of Board committees. In some years the Board has held additional meetings. Board members also hold a fiduciary responsibility for management of organizational capital and ensuring appropriate filings with federal, state, and local authorities. FCCANYS’s attendance policy allows for removal if three meetings are missed without notice.
