Board of Director Duties

Duties of a Director on the CPA Board

The governing body of the Association is the Board of Directors, which has authority over and is responsible for the supervision, control, and direction of the Association.

Directors are expected to attend and actively participate in all Board meetings and the annual membership meeting, to provide oversight of committees and member activities, and to provide leadership and decision-making regarding important issues requiring CPA’s activities, operation and direction.

Directors should familiarize themselves with the CPA Bylaws and any policies adopted by CPA leadership.

Directors should actively communicate with the CPA Officers, other Directors, and professional staff to maintain current oversight and supervision of CPA plans and activities as needed.

Directors are ambassadors for the CPA and should strive to promote CPA membership and activity whenever in contact with industry members.
