Policy Statement

The President is accountable to the Board acting as a collective body; therefore, only officially passed motions of the Board are binding on the President.


  • Decisions or instructions of individual Trustees are not binding on the President except when the Board has specifically authorized such exercise of authority.
  • The President shall seek direction from the Board Chairperson on requests from individual Trustee that in the President’s judgment may require a material amount of staff time, funds, or that are potentially disruptive.
