Board Member Onboarding (2022)
Welcome to the Board of Directors for Holly’s House! I am glad you have chosen to serve with us as we guide the direction of Holly’s House in its mission to empower victims of intimate crime and abuse by providing support, promoting justice, and preventing violence. With this position comes responsibilities and decision-making powers that will shape the operations and future of Holly’s House.
Your role on this board will include not only participation as a voting member, but also duties as a committee member. I will talk to you about the unique talents that you offer to the board and which committees could make the best use of these skills. In addition, every member of the board is expected to contribute to the fundraising responsibilities needed to keep Holly’s House functioning. Some board members provide personal financial gifts, while others assist with securing community or corporate donations. However, you choose to participate, please know that your contribution is an integral part of the continued operation of Holly’s House.
Our board meetings last about 1.5 hours and you will be provided with an agenda in advance of the meeting.
It is an honor to have you agree to serve on our board and I hope this will be the beginning of a rewarding experience for you. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (email) or Kristine Cordts, our Executive Director, at the Holly’s House office 812 437-7233.
