Role of International Advisory Board

The advisory board is a collection of individuals who bring unique knowledge and skills which augment the knowledge and skills of the formal board of directors in order to more effectively guide the organization. The advisory committee does not have formal authority to govern the organization, that is, the advisory committee cannot issue directives which must be followed. Rather, the advisory board serves to make recommendations and/or provide key information and materials to the board of directors. The advisory board plays an important public relations role as well as providing program staff with a fresh perspective on programmatic issues.

Effective advisory board have terms of service where members are appointed to a specific term and oftentimes there are also term limits. It is also important to ensure the advisory board has a clear purpose and guidelines for membership.
