ASSOCIATION BOARD STRUCTURE

The Association Board assists the Chapter with its management of the house, strategic planning, and a variety of other areas. Effective FarmHouse Associations have frequent communication with the active Chapter and a strong working relationship between the Board, active Chapter, and broader Association. An effective Association board needs at least 7 alumni members and 2-3 undergraduate members, plus the Chapter advisory team. Depending on the size of the Association Board, here is a possible Association Board structure:

Executive Committee - authorized to conduct business on behalf of the Association Board, authorized to sign checks - 2 signatures required on all checks, must live within 1-2 hours distance of the Chapter, expected to meet monthly for Association Board Executive Committee Meetings and more frequently as needed:
1. Association President
2. Association Vice President (Housing)
3. Association Treasurer
4. Association Secretary

The remaining Association officers may live throughout the state or even in other nearby states within driving distance. These officers would be expected to attend at least quarterly meetings of the full Association Board and be responsible for specific areas:

Board Mentors to Chapter
