The Governance Committee is responsible for nominating members to the Crew. Those persons seeking nomination to the Crew of Variety (Board of Directors) must meet the criteria as developed by the Governance Committee and approved by the Crew. It is desirable that all potential Board Members be able to demonstrate:
PASSION and an uncompromising commitment to the mission of Variety.
ETHICS by acting according to acceptable community standards, legally, morally and doing what is right.
UNDERSTANDING of the role of a Board Member and the difference between governance and administration. This includes not becoming involved in micromanaging the day to day operations.
GIVING is a basic requirement of a non profit board. One should give before asking others to do so. Giving can take the form of time, talent or treasure.
GETTING - Board Members must get directly involved in the process of making introductions, lending their name, asking their peers as part of fund development.
TIMING - is it the right time to become involved? Is it the right time to leave or move on? All Board Members are required to sign a letter of commitment that includes references to these criteria.
