In the organizational governance of Center for Development Initiative, the constituted 7 member Board of Directors primary responsibility is ensuring that the organization’s work ultimately contributes to its mission and purpose; resources are used wisely and effectively.

In addition to the oversight responsibility, the Board objectively stands back and looks at wider issues and allows the Executive Director to have more time to concentrate on the organization’s operations and be accountable.

The key role of the Board is therefore, to serve the organization with their rich and diverse expertise and experience. Board meetings take place twice in a year and may also be called at very short notice as the exigency may require.
