What the Board Does

What does a member of the Board of Directors do?

As a group, the Board’s duties include carrying out strategic planning and decision-making in areas such as the OTW’s mission, annual budget, projects and priorities; maintaining a long-term focus for the organization; monitoring progress toward strategic goals; ensuring organizational legal compliance; taking responsibility for organizational actions; having legal responsibility for the organization and its finances with the IRS; and signing contracts, disbursing funds, and transacting business of various kinds.

Individually, board members are expected to attend chat-based meetings; keep up to speed with relevant organizational communications and reports; and act in good faith in the best interests of the OTW.
