HopeLine Board of Directors Candidate Application
HopeLine's mission is to support people and save lives during times of crisis through caring, confidential conversations. To fulfill our mission, HopeLine relies on a 15-member strong Board of Directors whose focus is to position our organization to be effective, sustainable, and innovative in our field. We are seeking Board members that have a wide variety of experiences and talents, are ready to work as a team and contribute to the organization, are passionate about mental health, and are active members in the community. The Board aims to recruit members who understand the importance of equity, inclusion, and diversity in a governing body. Our goal is to create a Board that is reflective of the clients that we serve.
If you have any questions regarding the application, please email our Executive Director, Keri Christensen, at email@example.com.

In essence, exercising fiduciary duties means that board members have a duty to act with care and in the best interest of the organization and remain loyal to its mission, as opposed to acting in their own interest or the interest of the Executive Director they supervise.
