Role of the Board of Directors

The Board oversees the affairs of the Association in compliance with the Articles of Incorporation, the Bylaws, and the Virginia law under which the Association is incorporated. The Board of Directors has the responsibility to ensure that the Association is managed in such a way to ensure this result.

In general, the Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), selected and appointed by the Board of Directors, administers BRAR’s day-to-day affairs through the staff he or she selects. The Board of Directors will regularly monitor the effectiveness of management policies and decisions, including the execution of its strategies. Directors have no personal responsibility for errors and omissions of BRAR management, employees or agents provided those persons were prudently selected and the Directors’ reliance on them is reasonable.  The Board of Directors may delegate its authority to staff, but it cannot abdicate its responsibility to monitor and evaluate the staff’s performance.
