To provide professional advisory support to the 1000 Generations board and SFFC staff in Wisconsin.
2023 Advisory Committees (Existing and planned)
- Team Care
Advisory Committees DO:
- Advise and make recommendations to the BOD in the form of budgets, policies, and resolutions for approval by the board.
- Guide and equip staff directors towards best practice and successful implementation of changes as needed.
Advisory Committees DO NOT:
- Make governance decisions.
- Provide direct supervision or oversight to staff.
There is no minimum expected donation for participating in committee service, and no tracking of committee member financial contributions beyond what is done for all donors. Each committee member is asked and expected to give what they can, both in time and finances, to further the mission.
Term Length Time Commitment
- Committee members will serve 2 year teams. Should a committee member become chair and join the governing board, this will start a new 2-year term.
- Committee members should be prepared to volunteer around 5 hours per month, on average.
- Advisory committees meet as needed, and a minimum of 4 times per year.
- Chairs will be expected to also sit on the governing board, an 4 meetings a year and time commitment of around 3 hours per month, on average.
How Advisory Committees Connect
- Advisory committees connect to the Board of Directors through the committee chairs, who serve on the board and can both advocate for the positions of their committee and submit formal recommendations to the board of directors on governance items.
- Advisory committees connect to staff through staff directors who who sit on those committees, drive agenda items between meetings, and bring guidance and decisions to the staff level.
