Traditional Duties of a Nonprofit President
Although he is accountable to the board of directors, when it comes to the day-to-day running of the nonprofit company, the president bears the ultimate responsibility. The president is responsible to make sure that the other nonprofit officers (the nonprofit secretary, the nonprofit treasurer, and any vice-presidents) are fulfilling their duties. Other common duties of a nonprofit president include:
Signature authority. The president has the authority to sign legal documents on behalf of the corporation. This includes the ability to sign corporate checks, although other officers may also have this power.
Strategic planning. The president may participate in, or lead, short and long term planning for the organization. This includes developing programs to carry out the goals of the organization, and overseeing the implementation of these programs.
Fund raising. In most nonprofit organizations, the president oversees fund raising operations, and is also the organization’s chief fundraiser. This involves acting as the primary spokesperson for the organization, recruiting donors, and attending fundraising functions. - Edward A. Haman, Esq., January 2016
