Organizational Governance

CDTC seeks to develop and sustain an active governing body that is responsible for setting the mission and strategic direction of the organization and provide oversight of the finances, operations, and policies of CDTC.  To accomplish this, we ensure that board members and staff have the requisite skills and experience to carry out their duties and that all members understand and fulfill their governance duties acting for the benefit of CDTC and its public purpose. We ensure the organization conducts all transactions and dealings with integrity and honesty and promotes working relationships with board members, staff, volunteers, partners, and program beneficiaries that are based on mutual respect, fairness and openness. We clearly articulate and adopt organizational policies and seek sufficient resources to ensure financial stability of the organization, so that CDTC can effectively carry out its responsibilities.  CDTC ensure all spending practices and policies are fair, reasonable, and appropriate to fulfill the mission of the organization and be knowledgeable of and comply with all laws, regulations and applicable conventions for best management practices of non-profit organizations. Finally, we ensure that all the resources of the organization are responsibly and prudently managed and the organization has the capacity to effectively carry out its programs.
