The contract should start with the name of your organization, followed by the vision of the organization. Remember that people who participate in community service do so because they truly believe in the values of the organization, so take advantage of this part of the contract to inspire your new member and remind them of the purpose of the board of directors. You can complete this section by certifying that the members of the Board of Directors must demonstrate and prove that they are committed to the mission of the Organization. Follow this list with a list of board functions. Ensure that the new board member is jointly and severally liable for the actions of the organization and assumes both legal and practical responsibilities.
