What is a Board Member?
Board members are appointed as unpaid (voluntary) representatives of the community. The Board is responsible to see that funding is used in a way that optimally benefits the community in alignment with the vision and mission of the organization. The Board endorses the organization's strategic directions; however, Board Members are not involved in the day-to-day operations.
What is a Committee Member?
TVCC has four standing committees of the Board of Directors.
- Finance and Facilities
- Operational Priorities
- Human Resources, and
- Communication, Education & Technology
Board Committees are chaired by a sitting member of the Board and Committees report directly to the Board. The primary role of the committees is to provide guidance to the organization through input from volunteer community members from related areas of expertise.
Our Board Governance Manual is a comprehensive guide that outlines the roles and responsibilities of board members, our mission and values, and important policies and procedures. It ensures that our board operates transparently and effectively, and serves as an indispensable resource for both new and seasoned board members. Explore the manual to familiarize yourself with its contents and make the most of your work on our Board of Directors.
