LRCC is an Operational Board.

What is the difference between an operational board and a governance board? The difference between an operational board vs a governance board is that the former assists with execution of all of the day-to-day activities of the club, within the conditions defined through governance. In contrast, a governance board sets objectives and makes decisions that guide people toward achieving the overall goals.

What is the commitment time per month expected of me as a board member?

There is a monthly board meeting where all members are expected to attend. Apart from that, each position (outlined below) holds varying degrees of responsibility, which could include additional meetings, etc. and will require a continued commitment throughout the year.
