As a board you have a wide range of tasks, since it is your responsibility to keep the association or team going. Depending on the size of the association, this can take a few hours or even be almost a full-time job.
A board year enables you to take your association to the next level by managing every aspect of the association for (mostly) a full year. This includes managing events, managing finance, promotion, communication and creating a vision for the future to improve your association.
As a board (around 3-7 people) you get close to each other. As a group learn to overcome many setbacks and complications throughout the year. As a board you get a lot of support from your predecessors, other boards and of course the members of your association.
