Board of Directors
F.H. King is directed by a nine-member board of UW undergraduate and graduate students. Board members are required to serve one-year terms, but encouraged to stay two years. The F.H. King board of directors is nonhierarchical — each director has a significant degree of independence, board members are held accountable by each other, and major decision making is decentralized. Our nonhierarchical structure makes us more flexible and resilient, and addresses the problem of turnover, the need for accountability, and the importance of empowerment.
All members of the F.H. King Board of Directors share certain responsibilities, including assisting with programming and events, volunteering in the garden, and participating in major events. All Directors must attend weekly board meetings and office hours, as well as quarterly Mission & Vision sessions, and participate in quarterly peer evaluations.
