The Board of Directors meets virtually every other month, on the 2nd Thursday at 7:30 PM Mountain Time, as our members live across the country. Board members are actively engaged in email communication between meetings in order to carry out business. Becoming a board member requires a commitment of at least a year, but leaves of absence and early resignations are accepted. Board members will discuss programs, messaging, church relations strategy, operations and fund development. Board members are expected to participate in at least one standing LDS Earth Stewardship committee: Executive (officers), Finance / HR, Fundraising, Outreach and/or Membership.
The Advisory Board is a new opportunity to serve LDS Earth Stewardship. The Advisory Board will choose an evening to meet virtually each quarter to allow for a diverse pool of candidates from across the country. Similar to the Board of Directors, the Advisory Board is focused on the strategic operation of the organization. Members of this group will have an advanced understanding and sensitivity for working with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Enhanced skills in seeking out and connecting to influencers are helpful. Those who care deeply about our mission and have more influence than time are encouraged to participate.
The Church Relations Committee is focused solely on church relations. Members of this group have an advanced understanding and sensitivity for working with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and will utilize those skills to advance the relationship between LDS Earth Stewardship and the Church. Members of this committee will interact with church leaders on behalf of LDS Earth Stewardship and will be expected to work with professional courtesy, respect and discernment. Meetings will happen quarterly or as needed.
The Executive Committee represents officers of the board. Meetings are held virtually the 1st Thursday of each month at 7:30 PM Mountain Time. This committee is responsible for monitoring legal and financial matters between full board meetings and will advise the full board as to any issue arising. Supervision and recruitment of the Executive Director is managed by the Executive Committee. This committee also shepherds the operational elements of the organization. Members of the Executive Committee are chosen from members of the Board of Directors. Roles include: Chair, Vice Chair of Programs and Development, Vice Chair of Outreach, Treasurer and Secretary.
