I had posted a couple strongs ago about how JAH CHILDREN organization needed a web designer. We found that person, thankhs to this forum.
So now I am posting about our needs for another position to be filled, and that is the role of a Director on the Board of Directors.
A Board of Directors makes decisions for the organization, and in our case meets electronically to hold discussions and votes. We have 7 director positions and right now we are looking to fill one of them.
This is an excerpt from our Bylaws explaining the roles of a Director:
Board of Directors
JAH Children is an organization that aims to serve vulnerable African children and to raise awareness worldwide about situations that impact them; to provide a secure and healthful home for orphaned or abandoned children; to bring them an organic and Afrocentric education centered on mathematical and scientific studies, African languages, African tribes and culture, African sports and physical training, wholistic wellbeing, universal history and astronomy, natural and sustainable agriculture, and multigenerational roles, rites, and rituals; to support their place within a thriving community through initiating apprenticeship programs, working with local volunteers, and inviting educational presentations from community members; to do so in the Name and Manifestation of His Imperial Majesty Qedamawi Haile Selassie and Her Royal Highness Wolette Georgis I, Ras Tafari.
As a member of the Board of Directors, a Director’s responsibilities will be as follows: to participate in board meetings via video chat, telephone, or e-mail on the first and third Saturday of every calendar month at 9 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, unless such day falls on a legal holiday, in which event the regular meeting shall be held at the same hour and place on the next business day, totaling approximately two hours per month; to discuss, hear, and consider different options, and subsequently make votes on organization actions and policies; to hold the interests of the children we serve first in all decisions made pertaining to the organization; to serve on such Board of Directors for a period of twelve months, a position which has the possibility but not the obligation of reinstatement each year.
The rewards of serving as a Director are the ability to serve and make a difference in the lives of vulnerable African children; the partnership with individuals who have a purpose to see positive change in the world; and added resume experience as a Director with a legally formed non-profit corporation. Directors do not receive financial or material compensation.
