C. Board Decision-making

The land trust provides board members with clear expectations for their service and informs them about the board’s legal and fiduciary responsibilities. The board meets regularly enough to conduct its business and fulfill its duties, with a minimum of three meetings per year. Board members are provided with adequate information to make good decisions. Board members stay informed, attend a majority of meetings and ensure appropriate oversight of the organization, including its policies and programs, in order to achieve the land trust’s mission and goals.
