Responsibilities of all Board members

All Board members are expected to:

  • attend monthly Board meetings;

  • serve on at least one DRNC Committee (they generally meet once a month);

  • spend additional time outreaching to and supporting stakeholders; and

  • maintain up-to-date training and certifications on Code of Conduct, Ethics, and Funding (see below).

To be eligible to vote, each Board member must maintain up-to-date training and certifications on Code of Conduct, Ethics, and Funding.
