The Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America is governed to ensure we are effective, accountable and have direction. Our Council is governed by a board that takes overall responsibility for our work. Governance is the term used to describe the trustees’ role in:
- the long term direction of the Council, including its objectives or purposes
- implementing policies and activities to achieve objectives
- complying with legal requirements
- accountability to those with an interest or ‘stake’ in the Council
Good governance should happen throughout a charity. The trustee board is responsible for good governance but they rely on many different people to be able to govern well: staff, volunteers, advisers and stakeholders.
As a part of our commitment to transparency, the following public documents and records detail how our organization is governed.
