Mission: Business & Professional Women of the Triangle 

develops a powerful network of leaders to advocate, educate, and cultivate connections

 Board Responsibilities

Board and Chairwomen are the fiduciaries and ambassadors of our chapter.  As trustees, they insure that our chapter has adequate resources to advance our mission.

The basic responsibilities of our board of directors include, but are not limited to:

      • Determine mission and purpose. It is the board's responsibility to create and review a statement of mission and purpose.
      • Clearly define and articulate BPW Triangle's mission, accomplishments and goals to gain support from the community and enhance our public image.
      • Ensure and participate in the overall planning process, and assist in the implementation of planning goals.
      • Monitor and strengthen programming to determine if programs are consistent with our mission, and effectively monitor the effectiveness of programs.
      • Secure adequate financial resources for BPW Triangle's to work towards their mission, and ensure that proper financial controls are in place.
      • Build a competent board, and be able to articulate prerequisites for candidates, orient new members, and periodically and comprehensively evaluate the boards performance.
      • Ensure legal and ethical integrity.
      • While differences of opinion will likely arise, board members should keep disagreement impersonal. By practicing discretion and accepting decisions made on a majority basis, the board can accomplish unity and confidence in our decisions.

Individual members of the board are required to:

      • Attend all board and program meetings
      • Keep membership status in good standing
      • Stay informed about BPW Triangle's mission, services, policies and programming
      • Review agenda and supporting materials prior to board and committee meetings
      • Inform others about the organization and recruit new members 
      • Participate in fundraising
      • Assist the board in carrying out its fiduciary responsibilities, such as reviewing the organization's annual and financial statements.
