Any member in a position of leadership in the organization, holding a position on the Board of Directors, or serving on committees, or in chapter leadership, who feels they are unable to support the mission and written policies of the organization, should tender a resignation as a volunteer leader.  Non-church nonprofits should consider developing an official Board of Directors Job Description that outlines everything that is expected of a board member. In addition 501c3 nonprofits should expect 4-6 board meetings a year with at least one in person to fulfill the federal requirements. The following list of responsibilities is intended to be generic in nature and represents general duties as listed. Each nonprofit should carefully walk through these items and add or subtract as necessary to meet the needs of their organization.
