  2. The board does research based off existing knowledge and beliefs to write Ends policies which identify The Board's desired accomplishments for NSCA.

  4. The board rigorously monitors what is delegated to the Executive Director and the parameters the board has placed on the Executive Director.
  5. The board is responsible for itself and collectively monitors their own conduct against its own policies.
