The Board of Directors is responsible for the direction and management of the affairs of ICF-Houston. The initial Board of Directors has initiated the development of various services and facilities at this center. Fundraising efforts are also underway. Two inspectors monitor the financial affairs of ICF and ensure the Board’s compliance with the organization’s bylaws. They provide the members with financial and compliance reports at annual meetings. A volunteer legal counsel also assists the Board of Directors in legal matters. Members elect the Board of Directors and inspectors for a 2-year term at the ICF annual meeting. An office manager hired by the Board of Directors is responsible for managing and coordinating the organization’s day-to-day operations.
Other than reimbursement of expenses incurred to fulfill their board duties, ICF Board members serve without compensation for their time devoted to organizing, planning, and working at ICF’s events and ICF’s school. A detailed explanation of ICF’s income and expenses are given by ICF’s treasurer at the annual meeting of the members so that there is full transparency and clarity about ICF’s income as well as all its expenses and related obligations.
