The Board will support the work of I Would Rather Be Reading and provide
mission-based leadership and strategic governance. While day-to-day
operations are led by I Would Rather Be Reading’s Executive Director, the
Board-Executive Director relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate
involvement of the Board is both critical and expected.
