No specific qualifications are required to serve on the Board of Directors, although a 3-year commitment, energy, maturity and enthusiasm are extremely desirable. The Board also benefits by its members having leadership experience and practical business and organizational skills. A brief description of the responsibilities and expectations of the positions up for election this year, as described in the Bylaws, follows.
Treasurer: The Treasurer shall have custody of all monies, debts, obligations and assets of the corporation. He or she will receive all monies of the Corporation and deposit them in a bank insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. He or she will control and supervise the assets of the Corporation and the payment of debts and obligations. The Treasurer shall give bond, at the expense of the Corporation, when and in the amount designated by the Board of Directors. The Treasurer will publish a full and complete report of the financial status of the Corporation at the annual meeting of Members and at the end of each term. The Treasurer will cause to be maintained double entry books of account which will reflect the full and correct financial status of all receipts, disbursements, balances, assets, and liabilities of the Corporation. All checks and other orders for payment of monies of the Corporation will be signed by the Treasurer or such other officer(s) as designated by the Board of Directors. The Treasurer will submit his or her books and records to an Auditing Committee or a Certified Public Accountant designated by the Board of Directors at the end of each fiscal year.
