Roles and Responsibilities

The minimum time commitment to serve on the Board of Directors includes monthly 1 – 1 ½-hour board meetings via conference call and two in-person board meetings (in January, typically at NAHCR Headquarters in Altamonte Springs, FL, and July, in conjunction with the annual conference). Board members are also expected to attend the NAHCR Annual Health Care Recruitment Conference each year, beginning in the year in which they are elected.

The minimum time commitment does not include the time required to perform the duties outlined for each Director’s specific areas of responsibility. After the elections end, the Executive Committee, with input from Headquarters staff, decides what teams will be formed and appoints a Director to serve as a board liaison to each team. The Director is responsible for linking the work of the team back to the full board as follows:

  • Chair team meetings in the absence of the Team Chair
  • Communicate the goals of the strategic plan that relate to the team with the Team Chair
  • Support the Team Chair as needed
  • Recruit new members to the team as needed
  • Monitor the delegation of responsibilities
  • Assist with resolving conflicts among team members
  • Provide a written team report at each board meeting
    • The report should be as thorough as possible without delving into insignificant details.
    • If the team has a proposal for action or is seeking a response from the board, this should be indicated on the report.
    • A form is provided to all Board Liaisons to complete for reports for board meetings.
  • Evaluate the Team Chair with the President and Headquarters staff to determine eligibility for complimentary annual conference registration and/or running for a second year as Team Chair.
