Amy M Welch

Profile:

Amy is the Secretary-Treasurer of PEACE USA, formerly known as PEACE Mexico. PEACE USA primarily supports two entities: PEACE Animals (www.peaceanimals.org), and PEACE Punta de Mita (www.peacepuntademita.org). Other organizations such as Pasitos de Luz (www.pasitosdeluz.org), SayulitAnimals (https://www.facebook.com/pages/SayulitAnimals/177893972245435), Amigos de La Cruz de Huanacaxtle (www.amigosdelacruz.org), and Escuela San Quintin (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Escuela-San-Quintin/105928062779009) have also been helped through generous donations from the community and throughout the world. The animal program is a successful mobile spay and neuter clinic that primarily moves around a 25-mile radius within the Bay of Banderas (Puerto Vallarta). Each clinic is 4 days in length, and has a goal of spaying and neutering 25 animals per day while also treating animals for disease. Peace Punta de Mita is a registered Mexican non-profit which centers its work around the villages of Punta de Mita-Higuera Blanca. Within those communities, the organization strives to bring a better life to the villagers; a free alternative school for children unable to attend school because they do not have the necessary legal paperwork. Other programs the Punta de Mita group sponsors is Action for Food, where unemployed villagers can complete community projects such as picking up garbarge along the roadways, in exchange for basic food and household items. -h PEACE also strives to support other groups such as Pasitos de Luz, a daycare for severely-handicapped children, to give them treatment and food; in order to allow their parents to work.

Leadership Statement:

PEACE strives to make a difference to the lives of the communities in and around the Bay of Banderas; whether that is providing a summer school, sponsoring an alternative school, spaying and neutering cats and dogs, or giving out-of-work villagers work in exchange for basic food items. All these programs are provided free of charge, and make the lives better for the people.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
February 2015)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Yes
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
No
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Yes
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
No

?

This section is not a requirement for any of the Exchange participation levels - Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Instead, it is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff.

Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
