The Board establishes the objectives and goals for the ACE affiliate, including policies, programs and budgets, as required for the fulfillment of its trusteeship for the affiliate’s affairs and as consistent with the policies and procedures of the ACE National program. The Board is responsible for seeing that the affairs of the affiliate are conducted in a fashion conducive to achieving those objectives and goals. The Board approves the overall organization of the program and exercises oversight over the activities of the affiliate. Members of the Board are required to carry out the functions and responsibilities prescribed by the By-laws of the local ACE affiliate.
ACE suggests that affiliates present new board members with the Board Handbook, modified as necessary to suit the affiliate’s circumstances. New board members should be asked to sign the Statement of Expectations, which can be modified to reflect an affiliate’s particular situation.
