For any nonprofit organization, board members should meet basic legal obligations including Duty of Care, Duty of Loyalty and Duty of Obedience, but great board members do even more, offering servant leadership to their organization and community. Habitat Texas is blessed with such leaders from Habitat affiliates and at-large members (with a majority coming from affiliates).
