PPS Board Role Descriptions
DETAILED ROLE DESCRIPTIONS FOR BOARD CHAIR LEADERS:
To ensure our volunteer Board leaders have an informed decision making process to join the PPS Board and to greatly ease their training transition, the 2019 PPS Board created Role Descriptions for each Board Chair Role. These documents contain: responsibilities, estimated time commitment, and key skills needed.
In addition, each Board Chair has prepared a "training"notebook containing key processes, forms, templates, timelines, etc. to further ease the training and transition for our wonderful volunteer Board leaders. Each Board Chair will review their "training" notebook with their successor and also be available for dedicated coaching during the first three months of the successor's tenure.
Our PPS By-Laws, a requirement of a non-profit organization, currently states that our Board Chairs serve a minimum of one year and a maximum of 3 years in any one role. Of course, future Board leaders can vote to change or amend this, as well as vote to change the Role Descriptions as needed.
Your 2019 Board wants your experience stepping into Board leadership to be one that is smooth and well supported by documentation and coaching. In addition, these materials contribute to the sustainability of our organization for years to come.
