What Is the role of the Rising Tide’s Board?

The Board of Directors is the governing body for the member-owners of Rising Tide. It is composed of nine member-owners of Rising Tide, elected by the member-owners. Terms for Directors are three years. The Board is responsible for ensuring organizational performance on behalf of all of Rising Tide’s member-owners.

This work includes developing clearly stated expectations through written policies; delegating responsibility for, and authority over, the achievement of stated objectives; and monitoring compliance with written policies. By devoting time to focus on the big-picture vision of Rising Tide, the Board will ensure that we adequately position our organization for the maximum benefit of our member-owners, as well as anticipate trends and values which may have a critical impact on our relevance and survival.

We work on strategic planning, financial oversight, member-owner engagement, and community outreach.
