DIRECTOR

Directors are responsible for overseeing the corporation's business and affairs. Just as representatives in Congress are elected by voters, directors are elected by shareholders. The officers of the corporation run the day-to-day activities. The board of directors must approve important corporate decisions, such as the amendment of the corporate charter, the issuance of stock and entrance into a merger.
