What is a board agreement?

A board agreement defines the responsibilities of board members and specific expectations tied to service on their particular board. These expectations may define requirements for personal giving, committee or task force duties, meeting attendance obligations, and other activities in which every board member is expected to participate.

Purpose of the contract

The contracts remind board members of what serving on the board means. These contracts are not legal documents but as reminders while making a point that there are obligations with volunteering.
