    ___ In the event the Board of Director's membership falls under 10 personnel, you must be prepared to accept and fulfill additional responsibilities/tasks as assigned. 

     

    ___ Resign if I cannot fulfill these expectations.

     

    Attend the annual retreat/planning meeting  

    As a board member, you must participate in planning the organization’s future. Every board member must attend the entire 3-4 hours session held in December.  

     

    Committee & Event Participation

    Each board member must actively participate on at least one committee.

    • attend meetings
    • participate in discussions
    • actively supporting any special event sponsored by the committee.

    Board members will sign up for the committees of their choice at the Annual Board Member Retreat/Planning Meeting.  

     

    Event Participation

    Each board member must actively support at least three events. 

    KOB events include:  

    • Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off/Spring Sweep
    • Earth Day
    • Fall Sweep 
    • Neighborhood Shademakers
    • Odessa/America Recycles Day
    • Planet Troopers

    • Appreciation Luncheon
    • Annual Recycle Fashion Show Event
    • Other fundraiser events

     

    Attend Board Meetings

    There are eleven board meetings during the year and no meeting in December or January. Attending all meetings is one of the most vital board member expectations.

     

    Make a Personal Donation/Dues

    Each board member must make a $200 annual financial commitment.

     

    Solicit Memberships

    KOB community programs/projects depend on private donations; therefore, board members must raise the necessary funds. 

     

    Participate in Grant Seeking/Fund Raising

    Each board member must actively participate in grant-seeking and fundraisers for the administration of Keep Odessa Beautiful programs.

     

    Resign

    Unexpected things happen in our lives, and the available time to serve our community changes. Board members must resign if unable to fulfill their commitment to the organization. However, board members can be part of the organization in different capacities that do not require a long-term commitment.


    By checking the "I agree" box below, you agree and acknowledge that 1) your commitment form will not be signed in the sense of a traditional paper document, 2) by signing in this alternate manner, you authorize your electronic signature to be valid and binding upon you to the same force and effect as a handwritten signature, and 3) you may still be required to provide a traditional signature at a later date.
