Board of Directors:The Board of Directors is elected by the members of Planned Parenthood to run the organization. It sets policy, speaks on behalf of the members, and directs the Executive Director on the operations of Planned Parenthood. During the course of the year, the board discusses and sets policy, helps to raise public awareness of Planned Parenthood and its aims, organizes fundraising events and makes decisions about the organization's programs and services.
The board of directors meets once a month. The President compiles an agenda before the meeting, with input from the Executive Director and the board. At the meeting, the President guides the board through the agenda, allowing everyone a chance to speak on each item. Every board member is entitled to one vote -- the chair votes only to break a tie.
