At its annual meeting in June, 2010, the RESNA Board approved the formation of the RESNA Development Board (DB). This is a semi-autonomous Board that has as its sole purpose the effective management of all funds and programs resulting from grants or donor gifts to RESNA. This initiative requires a revision to RESNA’s Bylaws that will specify the explicit purpose of the DB, its Board structure and its mandate to establish and manage programs like the Founders Fund. Briefly, the Development
Board will consist of nine voting members, three of whom must be RESNA Fellows, two current RESNA Board executives, and the remainder being selected to add expertise in areas such as post graduate education, fund raising, and financial investment. The disbursement of all revenues generated through the Development Board will be at the sole discretion of the DB.
