The Board will:

  • Be accountable for the realization of its goals.

  • Direct, control and inspire the organization through careful establishment of the broadest written policies which reflect the values and perspectives of its members and stakeholder communities.

  • Monitor and regularly discuss the Board’s own process and performance to ensure the continuity of its governance capability by retention and development of Board members.

  • Self-evaluate its performance.

  • Commit to continuous improvement, including orientation of new members and Directors to the Board’s governance model and periodic Board discussion of governance process.
