February 11, 2013  Board Basics:  Board Roles & Responsibilities:

This module presents the many responsibilities attached to serving on a water authority board. Many board members are unaware of the scope and breadth of these responsibilities, which range from fiscal responsibility to environmental compliance, ethics, avoiding conflict of interest and familiarity with state and federal laws. Participants will learn:

    ·         Why a public drinking water supply system must operate as a viable business

    ·         The concept of capacity development (technical, managerial and financial), and how each                 of the TMF elements are interrelated

·             The key legal responsibilities of governing bodies in the oversight of a water utility

·             Board practices that can help water boards stay informed and respond proactively


This workshop will give participants the information and resources they need to understand a board’s legal responsibilities and become proactive and informed board members. Recommended audience includes system managers, new or existing board members, and those considering serving on a water system board.
