The importance of the advisory board

Few organizations are more dependent on their boards or advisory organizations than The Salvation Army.

Advisory Boards are absolutely essential in the work and acceptance of The Salvation Army in communities in which they serve.

Salvation Army officers have the status of

ordained ministers and are employed by the

Army in a professional capacity and on a

full-time basis.

They are members of The Salvation Army who

have committed their life to doing God's will and

serving others.

The effective advisory board

The Effective Advisory Board

The primary and most important function is to

support the local corps officers.

The board assumes a liaison role between The

Salvation Army and the community. The board

will work to increase the visibility of the

organization and its interaction within the

community.

www.salvationarmynne.org


Becoming an effective advisory organization member

The board members also function as

interpreters. They must interpret the

community to The Salvation Army so as to

understand its pulse, character and needs.

This will provide better understanding for

developing appropriate programs and funding

resources.

www.salvationarmynne.org


Becoming an effective advisory organization member

The board must be instrumental in developing

goals and a strategic plan of action to achieve

those goals.

Board members are the doers.

Fundraising and fiscal accountability

Fundraising and Fiscal Accountability

The very nature of a not-for-profit

organization is to depend on its board for

fundraising assistance.

Along with fundraising comes fiscal

accountability. Since each local unit must stand

on its own financially, the Advisory Board must be

involved in this process to help ensure a solid

financial operation and appropriate accountability

to the community.

Becoming an effective advisory organization member

A good Advisory Board is a stabilizing unit and

a significant element of continuity for the

Army in a community.

Board development

Board Development

individual.
