The board member has strong community connections and networks, access and knowledge about individual, corporate and foundation resources, good people skills and an engaging personality and is comfortable talking about money and finances.
The board member responsible for marketing and events brings to the organization deep and broad experience in the oversight of marketing and events that produce immediate and direct results for an organization’s bottom line. This board member should both be able to roll up their sleeves, but also is able to see the big picture of the impact of marketing and events.
A treasurer should have a strong working knowledge of accounting. They typically prepare financial reports for each meeting that include information about the company's viability and stability. These reports need to be clear and concise to help inform any of the board's decisions. Treasurers also manage public funds, which includes making important decisions regarding spending and investing. They work closely with other company executives to obtain drafts of the annual budget for board approval.

The board member responsible for volunteers and outreach is as important to the organization as its fundraising board leadership and personnel. This board member will advocate for the volunteer, and will help create policies and procedures that help engage volunteers to their highest levels of contribution.
Board members who do not hold one of the executive positions often volunteer to serve as the head of committees. They attend meetings, where they can make motions and discuss and vote on board matters. After serving as board members, they might be elected to serve in a more advanced role on the board of directors.
