Summary of the Roles
The role of every council member is threefold; to approve organizational direction, ensure necessary resources, and provide oversight. Serving on the board is both an honor and a compliment to you as a professional. The qualities sought after in council members are the desire to ask powerful questions, to listen for understanding, to gauge what and when to probe and to appreciate conversation over conflict.
The Executive Council generally meets on a monthly basis in-person for an hour and a half with a recess in the summer. The meetings take place at the MDA Offices in Minneapolis.
