Being on a Health Center Board of Directors carries a weighty responsibility not only with the oversight and responsibilities of the HRSA Program Requirements, but also understanding the rules and requirements of each state’s non-profit requirements. It is important that regardless of whether board members are new or have been part of the board for several years, there is a responsibility to ensure that the Board of Directors receive education and training on their roles and responsibilities. Having regular governance education will ensure that the board members understand their role and have the knowledge base to fulfill what is required of them.

Health Centers that train and educate their Board of Directors are investing in their leadership, which can have a direct impact on the well-being of their health centers. As health centers continue to play a vital role in the health care system, forward thinking Board of Directors also have a seat at the table as they are responsible for the health center. Providing them with the tools and resources for success will position the health center for even greater success.
