Board members work alongside RIGC members to create the beauty and community of our Roosevelt Island gardens that are open seasonally for so many Roosevelt Island residents and visitors.
Since 2013, our updated RIGC By-Laws include four elected Officers and three elected Directors. In addition, RIGC has standing committee Chairs who are appointed to serve on the Board. The Board meets monthly with formal meeting minutes, agendas, and careful attention to quorum; following Roberts Rules for all meetings. In between our meetings, Board members follow up on our respective roles and projects. We stay in touch and work to provide the best possible gardening season for all.
Board member volunteer work might be measured in hours -- from 2 to 10 to 20 or more -- per week. But just like our member volunteer work for community service, it cannot be fully measured in this way. We value the friendships created, our care for the earth, and the constant learning. Our time working alongside each other for RIGC is "priceless!"
