Burritt on the Mountain is governed by a 17-member Board of Directors appointed by the City of Huntsville. The board’s primary responsibilities include:

  • Determine mission and purpose
  • Select the Chief Executive Officer
  • Support and evaluate the chief executive
  • Ensure effective planning
  • Monitor and strengthen programs and services
  • Ensure adequate financial resources
  • Protect assets and provide financial oversight
  • Build a competent board

Burritt’s Board has been proactive in incorporating strong governance principles. The Board meets once a month as a whole and Board Members also serve on Governance, Finance, Executive, Development, and Personnel committees. Our directors sign a Conflict of Interest and a Code of Ethics Statement. Burritt has a Whistleblower and Document Destruction and Retention Policy, to be in compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley, even though this is not a requirement for non-profit organizations. Board Members may serve two, three-year terms of office.
