The text from the email to new board members:
"I wanted to follow up on your interest in a position on the Council's Board of Advisors.
As you may know, we have 12 advisers, and they are broken into 3 groups of 4 advisers each. Each group serves a staggered 3 year term. One group of four has their terms ending at the end of the year.
Expectations of the board include attending (either in person or by phone) 3 meetings during the year plus the annual conference. In addition, there may be some requests for assistance or guidance that I send out occasionally throughout the year. However, I understand that you are all very busy people, so I have not asked for much.
All board members are asked to bring their companies into the Green Masters Program.
In addition, each board member is responsible for securing sponsorship dollars for our annual conference from their company. The sponsorship commitment is $5,000 annually. I would need this money in early fall to help cover pre-conference costs. In reality, the sponsors’ money mainly goes to offset the costs of having students attend the conference and for running the Green Masters Program.
I look forward to receiving proposals next week.
