Priority One – Board of Directors
Our board is responsible for the strategic direction and governance of the campaign. In a word our board is responsible for our success and a great part of that success will be the successful governance and investment of large sums of public money to stop abuse. The board is one of our two top priorities. It will provide both the strategic backbone and political clout to stop abuse.
The Stop Abuse Campaign is open and inclusive. We are a membership organization and our members vote to ratify our board every year. Our board appoints our CEO who leads a small professional team of staff members who manage the campaign.
Our board, substantially recruited, will consist of leaders in marketing, communications, psychology, member services, insurance, education, health care industry, other abuse causes and survivors as well as leaders of different religious communities. Remember, it will take all of us working together to stop abuse. We have no give get targets, our board are recruited for their skills, not their money (although we have yet to turn down a donation!).
