The Boys and Girls Club Board’s role is to establish identity and strategic direction, ensure necessary resources, and provide oversight. Additionally, the board must provide a quarterly report to the ITKN Executive Committee. The Boys and Girls Club Board meets once per month, and each board member receives $75.00 per formal board meeting. The board will also form committees and task forces to accomplish various tasks as needed. As the board will be filled entirely by new board members (the existing four members have just been appointed), and with the recent hiring of a new C.E.O. for the Boys and Girls Club, meetings may need to take place weekly until all are settled in their roles. Board members are expected to contribute outside of board meetings as needed.
Board members may join meetings virtually; however, they must provide their own reliable internet and devices. Board appointments are one year in length.
To be eligible to sit on this board, you must be 18+ years of age and a member of the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska. You must pass a background check and drug screening.
