What is the Role of a Board Member?
As a Board member you are at the steering wheel of the sustainability agenda for Europe and beyond. Board members are responsible for taking critical decisions on the strategic direction, governance and the overall performance of the organisation. They usually meet 4 times a year and are vested with all powers of management and disposal. This includes deciding on relevant issues and performing all necessary actions to achieve the purpose of the association. The Board members’ powers, decisions and actions are limited by those which fall within the scope of the General Assembly. Inside the Board, the Directors do not represent their own companies or organisations but a wide corporate network, and nonprofit-driven members.
