Board of Directors




Governing Board


The process for Board selection shall take place as follows [578.7(3)]: The BoS CoC Board of Directors (hereinafter referred to as “Board”) is the governing body of the Balance of State Continuum. Considerations for board representation include expertise and experience in homelessness, geographic distribution, diversification of interests, provider perspective, the perspective of homeless persons, limiting/managing conflicts of interest, and other relevant factors. Board members must be relevant -- meaning that they must live or work in the geographical area of the BoS CoC. By accepting a Board position, all Board members by definition also become Continuum members.


The Board shall follow the rules of the bylaws. To assure a strong start, continuity over the

longer-term, and to mitigate the potential for liability claims against individuals serving on the Board.
