Board members have three legal duties: 1) the duty of Diligence or Due Care,
2) the duty of loyalty to the organization, and 3) the duty of Obedience to the
Law, to make sure that the organization is always operating in compliance
with the law. In our training sessions for Board members and staff, we explain
the details of what each of those duties means, and also explain and discuss
the practical responsibilities of Board members.
No Board member is responsible for individually fulfilling the following
responsibilities; it is the job of the Board as a whole, working in collaboration
with the organization’s workers, whether they are volunteer workers,
contractors or paid employees.
Further, in performing their duties Board members have the right to rely on
the advice, information, and assurances of the organization’s officers, staff,
advisers, bookkeepers, accountants, attorneys, and other advisers.
