Version: 13 March 2021

These references help the join up of new Board Members to the Unit 124 Cincinnati Bridge Association Board of Directors and guide the operation of the Board itself. 

The CBA Unit 124 Board of Directors governance is based on our constitution, policies, and procedures, Ohio Law, and ACBL Regulations in their entirety. Our organization structure facilitates our work. The Board binds Committees to defined roles and decision limits (charters), and Sub Committees to task and time limits. Our Board deliberates formally (Roberts Rules of Order) and owns all decisions as outlined in our constitution and policies. The ACBL gives guidance to Unit Boards to maximize our effectiveness.
