Example of an activity requiring Board approval:
PIC Foundation is required to sponsor an “educational seminar” once per year for potential donors. The Board Members would need to discuss and vote on where to hold seminar, how to pay for seminar, who would speak/present at seminar, whom to invite, and how those invitations would be distributed. The Board would most likely vote to form several committees to research these different areas and present the results of their research and recommendations back to the Board at the next meeting. The Board would then vote to approve moving forward with the recommendations.
The organization can not take any action without the approval of a majority of Board Members. (i.e. No one person can “run” the organization.)
The Board uses Robert’s Rules of Order to conduct business.
Requirements for Service:
Term of service is 1 year
Attendance of annual meeting and bi-monthly board meetings (held via conference phone calls)
Please understand that we are all parents of children that require extra attention. Our first priority is our family. We stand by the saying “family first”. If you decide to take a board position and find your families’ needs are affecting your time, please tell us. We can either replace your board position with someone else, or have your position on hold until your family is well. In order for us to be successful and help not only our own children but the children that follow with Protein Intolerance, we need to come together as parents to educate our communities.
