A Board of Directors is an appointed committee that has overall responsibility for the management of a nonprofit organization. The board of trustees holds “in-trust” the funds, assets or property that belong to others and has a fiduciary duty to protect them. Most importantly, the board of trustees oversees and advises management on issues facing the organization.
Currently there are six active board members and one ex officio board member for the Monroe County Coalition for Children & Families. Board membership is comprised of, but not limited to, DHHR, FRMS (Behavioral Health), the Board of Education, the Monroe County Health Department, and community members. Representative membership in the FRN is also available to consumers of services and community organizations, advocacy groups, religious organizations, the business community, and other service providing agencies wishing to participate in the future development of Monroe County.
As an evolving organization, we are looking to expand our Board of Directors and enlist new Family Representatives that can provide insight and direction about how to serve our community. Responsibilities of a Board Member include attending the Board of Director’s meeting once a month. A Board Member can choose to become more active if they wish and assist the director with further planning and coordination of services. Individual membership is open to those who live and/or work in Monroe County and are interested and willing to participate in the mission of the Monroe FRN. All memberships are without regard to race, creed, color, national origin, sex, disability, age or religion.
