The Family Place is a non-profit organization whose operations are managed by an Executive Director, and overseen by a governing Board of Directors.
A non-profit organization is structured so that a group of committed individuals operating as the Board of Directors, constitutes the governing body of the organization. Our By-laws direct that we have a Board of 5 to 11 directors (or members), consisting of both parents and community members. Within the Board, a core group consisting of the President, Secretary, and Treasurer, creates the Board Executive. The remaining members attend all Board meetings, vote on issues, sit on committees, and form the governance direction of the organization.
The Board’s role is, as mentioned, “governance”. “Governance” refers to the policies and procedures that direct the overall operation of the organization. Board members use these policies and procedures, which have been voted and passed at Board meetings, to provide the structure within which the Executive Director is expected to operate the child care centres. The Board does not play a direct role in the day to day operation of the centres. This is the role of the Executive Director, hired and supervised by the Board to run the centres.
