A board member should be committed to the Corsicana Main Street Program by giving of his/her time, experience, skills, and some level of monetary resources to advance the mission and goals of the organization.
The board of directors is responsible for the general direction and supervision of the program, but does not handle day-to-day operations. The executive committee is made up of the board officers (i.e., president, vice president, secretary) and employees (both paid and volunteer) that manage daily routines. However, this doesn’t mean that board members should not take a lead role on teams and committees. Effective board members should anticipate a time commitment of between two and eight hours each month.
