Sitting on the board

I was amazed to find out how many groups and organizations there are in Paulding County and how many are ran by a group of board members. In fact, there is a list of organizations in a public online report, which includes schools, churches, hospitals, mental health facilities, senior centers, health departments, nonprofit groups and many more entities where decisions are made by a board.

Sometimes a board of directors will have as many as 12 members or as few as three. Some board members are elected and get paid but the majority give of themselves and are volunteers.

If you are sitting on any type of a board, you must take the position very seriously and be familiar with group policies.
