The Arc of the Mid Ohio Valley needs skilled, committed volunteers to provide leadership through involvement on the Board of Directors.
What does a board member do? Board members are responsible for setting the direction of The Arc, monitoring the services that are provided to assure quality, and developing policies to guide the agency. Board embers are also encouraged to contribute to The Arc and to encourage others to contribute their tie, talents, funds or other resources.
How much time does it require? Currently, board meetings are held five times a year. The meetings begin at 6:00 and meetings are generally over by 7:00 PM. An annual planning session is held each August, and an annual meeting open to all members of The Arc is held each year. Beyond that, your level of involvement is up to you.
Am I liable for actions of the board or agency? West Virginia law protects board members who act in good faith. If you attend meeting, participate actively and do your best to make good decisions, you are not personally liable. The Arc has Officers and Directors Liability Insurance through the West Virginia Board of Risk Management.
