  • Bring energy, ideas, and connections to further ARCE’s programs and development in Egypt and North America. Board members are expected to contribute to the success of ARCE through active participation in board and committee meetings, membership growth, development and fundraising and engagement with the ARCE offices and staff.
  • Attend all in-person Board meetings, and any scheduled meetings held via teleconference. This usually comprises two in-person meetings and two teleconferences per year.
  • Participate in the Board by serving on at least one committee.
  • Work towards integrating the professional and non-professional sides of ARCE by attending local chapter events.
  • Be a member of ARCE at the Lotus Level ($155), at a minimum, and maintain that membership throughout tenure on the board.
  • Non-profits are helped when 100% of their board members give financial donations annually, because participation is a metric used by donors and foundations when determining whether or not to contribute to an organization. ARCE Board Members are thus asked to make a contribution to the annual appeal in line with their capacity.
  • Board members may not apply for ARCE funding (fellowships, AEF grants, etc.) while serving on the Board.
