There are sixteen volunteer board members serving the Harrison County Community Foundation. Each is elected to a three-year term and may serve no more than two consecutive terms. The Board of Directors typically meet on the first Monday of each month to consider routine business. Special board meetings or committee meetings are called as required to ensure the proper conduct of our mission. Officers who will serve during the next calendar year and the operating budget are determined at the annual meeting.
During the latter half of 2011, the Board Development Committee explored options for getting more people involved in our decision-making and to recruit potential candidates to serve on the Foundation board. The result was the creation of the Community Volunteers. These community representatives serve as voting members on many of our committees. Their contribution will bring more voices to the table while giving them experience in how we conduct our work.
Considerations to provide for a diverse representation of our community among board members and community volunteers include geographic residency (within Harrison County), professional background, ethnicity, gender, special skills, and education. All members sign a Conflict of Interest Statement requiring them to declare any possible conflicts and must withdraw from voting on any issue which is, or may appear to represent, a conflict of interest.
Any resident of Harrison County, Indiana may apply to be considered for membership on the Foundation Board of Directors. To apply to participate as a Board Member or Community Volunteer click here for an application. For additional information, contact us at 812-738-6668.
