- Office & Executive Team
- Purpose & Function: As the name implies, the main function of the PAC is to advise the Officers and Directors of TGOMF as requested within each members’ scope of expertise, skill-sets, and availability.
Structure: Simply, the PAC is a collection of highly talented individuals dedicated to supporting TGOMF. It doesn’t function like a Board of Directors. Members do not have voting power, and do not approve the corporate structure, budget, finances, or programs. Further, the PAC does not have a legal, fiduciary, or governance responsibility to the Foundation. There is no “chairperson” or leader assigned to the PAC, and it has no separate meetings.
Member Eligibility & Selection: Members of the PAC are chosen based upon several factors, including:
The type of expertise/skill-sets needed by the Foundation at a given time.
The level of professional experience/achievement of the prospective member.
The number of personal/professional connections the prospective member has.
Peer perception of the prospective member’s character, trustworthiness, etc.
Opportunities to serve may be posted on our website, volunteer center, etc. The Executive Director reviews all applications and officially appoints all PAC members. All members serve at the will of the Executive Director.
