Each member of the Samaritan Center Board of Directors serves for a 3-year term. They can continue to serve another 3-year term consecutive to the first, but no more than a continual 6-year service. Their service is contingent upon an application process and majority vote of the sitting board.

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month pending holidays and/or other conflicts.

Legal Duties of the Board

According to nonprofit corporation law, a board member is expected to meet certain standards of conduct and maintain a level of responsibility to the organization. They include:

Duty of Obedience
Adherence to the organization’s mission and central purposes must be at the core of all decisions. The board must also ensure that the organization operates within the law, both its own bylaws and policies, but also the “law of the land.” (Note: Bylaws should be reviewed and updated, if necessary, each year.)

Duty of Care
Board members should exercise reasonable care in all dealings surrounding the organization and its interests. This most decidedly includes careful oversight of financial matters as well as attention to the reading/adoption of minutes and organizational issues. It is a board member’s responsibility to raise questions on issues/points that seem unclear or questionable.

Duty of Loyalty
A board member must avoid conflicts of interest as well as the perception of a conflict of interest. This includes personal conflicts of interest, corporate/business conflicts and/or conflicts associated with any other organization to which the board member has ties.

Duty of Transparency
Boards have an obligation to ensure that the operation of the organization is appropriately transparent. Generally this entails the filing of the IRS form 990, other tax returns and making available its donor code of ethics.



Carl's Cares

Samaritan Center was honored to be the first local non-profit to be featured in a new initiative launched by Carl’s Buick GMC:  Carl’s Cares.  As Carl’s spotlighted charity for July 2019, Samaritan Center received a donation for every car sold - a total of $2,200!  Carl’s also helped us educate the public about Samaritan Center by inviting us to share our story with their sales staff and displaying our brochures in their showroom. The generous people at Carl’s, have already been instrumental in helping Samaritan Center obtain a new van at a price we could afford.  They are truly a valued community partner.
