The ONA Board is a volunteer governing entity made up of digital media leaders. Your role is to help set high-level strategy for the organization, in close collaboration with the Executive Director, and provide financial oversight. Board members also perform fundraising as needed and often chair or join committees to help think through or implement initiatives and goals.
The Executive Committee – the President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary – directs and advises the Executive Director on financial, personnel, legal and communications decisions that impact the future of the organization, and occasionally brings larger decisions or matters for a vote to the full Board.
From the organization’s inception in 1999, the Board’s culture has reflected that of our digital community–agile, diverse and open to ideas. And, as it has evolved from an operating to a governing board, it has become uniquely collaborative and supportive of leadership and staff. This chart serves as a quick visual guide to areas of focus for the Board and staff.
