FCS bids farewell to its outgoing Board Members

The Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) has bid some fond farewell to its outgoing Board Members in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the growth and image of the organisation, and the civil society sector in general.

Held on 15 April soon after conducting the extraordinary Annual General Meeting (AGM), the FCS President Dr. Stigmata Tenga, said it was a great honour and privilege to have benefited from the service of devoted members of the board, who will be hugely missed.

The outgoing members of the Board include the former chairperson, Ms. Olive Luena; Ms. Rehema Tukai (vice chair); Mr. Casmir Makoye; and Mr. Adam Simbeye who have served in the Board since year 2009.

As per Memorandum and Articles of Association of the FCS, the Board of Directors is the second principle organ of the FCS after the Members who are rather chaired by the President. The Board thus is a Governing Board providing regular oversight of the activities of the Foundation.

The Board’s role include: approving any changes to the structure of the FCS, approving higher level policy and changes or additions to high level rules, regulations and procedures of the FCS, providing final approval of annual plans and budgets for endorsement at the AGM, review and discussion of the financial report with the auditors and presenting audited financial statements for approval by the AGM, and also, the recruitment and performance management of the Executive Director.
