WILD FOR LIFE FOUNDATION
Public Benefit Corporation

GOVERNANCE


Our Board of Directors consists of 100% volunteers who contribute their time, money and resources in service to the board for the benefit of the Mission of the Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF). Now in our 10th year, the Wild for Life Foundation has a well established track record of compliance with all relevant laws and regulations. Our articles of incorporation and bylaws detail the authority and powers of our board of directors and any committees. These governing documents formalize WFLF policies, procedures and structures that demonstrate WFLF’s effective governance.

The WILD FOR LIFE FOUNDATION (WFLF) Board of Directors is responsible for determining and monitoring the mission of the organization and the strategy that supports it. Regular reviews of the WFLF’s mission and strategy assure that resources are used responsibly and that the strategy is consistent with accomplishing our mission. WFLF’s Board of Directors reviews the WFLF’s governing documents on an ongoing basis to assure relevance and alignment with current practices. The Board of Directors reviews the WFLF’s bylaws and other governing documents at least every three years.

Board of Directors (BOD)
Role of the WFLF Board of Directors
Consistent with best practices in nonprofit governance, WFLF achieves a balance in leadership through an active Board of Directors and dedicated staff who are led by the Executive Director. WFLF’s Board of Directors in turn provides oversight and guidance to the Executive Director. WFLF’s Board ensures that WFLF stays aligned with its mission and values in addition to complying with all federal and state laws. WFLF’s Executive Director Develops and executes WFLF’s policies, programs, and initiatives and is significantly more involved than the Board in the day-to-day operations of the organization.

WFLF BOD Code
Board of Directors (BOD) are expected to exercise the duties and responsibilities of their positions with integrity, collegiality, and care.
The WFLF Board expects of itself and its members ethical and business-like conduct. This commitment includes proper use of authority and appropriate decorum in group and individual behavior when acting as Board members.
(1) Board members must represent, with unconflicted loyalty, the interests of the membership. This accountability supersedes any conflicting loyalty such as that to advocacy or interest groups and membership on other Boards or staffs. This accountability supersedes the personal interests of any Board member acting as an individual consumer of the Society's services.
(2) Board members must avoid any conflict of interest with respect to their fiduciary responsibility.
(3) There must be no self-dealing or any conduct of private business or personal services between any Board members and the Society except as procedurally controlled to assure openness, competitive opportunity, and equal access to "inside" information.
(4) Board members must not use their positions to obtain for themselves, family members, or close associates, employment within the Society.
(5) Should a Board member be considered for employment by the Society, he or she must temporarily withdraw from Board deliberations, voting, and access to applicable Board information.
(6) Board members and members at large may not attempt to exercise individual authority over Society or WFLF staff except as explicitly set forth in Board policies.
