3.1 Board Roles and Job Descriptions

Impact100 boards are working boards. Although the Impact100 model is simple – executing it is not easy! Recruiting the right leadership team can mean the difference between success and frustration. The ideal Impact100 Board has between 15-31 members. This means the Board President must be organized and focused when running these meetings, or she will lose the attention for her high capacity board.
