Board of Directors

Board of Directors Duties

The RPIRG Board of Directors is composed of 8 Student Members of RPIRG. It is the decision-making body of RPIRG, which makes all major decisions regarding finances, long-term goals, long-term viability of the organization, staffing, and funding application approval – all using concensus-based decision making principles.

RPIRG board members meet 2 times per month, sit on committees which report to the board on matters like staff relations, budgets, events, and funding, and help to run and promote RPIRG events.

Every spring, students vote for their Board of Directors in conjunction with other student group elections. All Student Members of RPIRG who are in good standing will be able to run for a seat on the RPIRG Board of Directors. Board terms are 2 years, but you can run for up to 2 terms. New board members receive a full orientation and are given opportunities and resources throughout the year to pursue professional development training related to their role.

Although only board members can vote on important decisions and motions, ALL students are welcome to attend our open board meetings or be involved in committee work. If you’re considering running in our board election, are curious about nonprofit governance, or would like to get involved in a committee to share some great ideas you have, please join us! – please email to confirm start time and location.
