Introduction for New Board Members:
Recognizing that being a new member on the board can be daunting, this manual is an attempt to organize useful information in an easily accessible form.
It is not expected that you would read it in its entirety. Some pages are for reference only.
The Board Binder is the complete governance document reference (all policies and committee charges and ministerial contracts/agreements). A link to this is available to Board Members via firstname.lastname@example.org
