Nonprofit FAQ

Can the officers of my nonprofit corporation also serve as directors?

Yes. Generally, the board of directors elects officers to run the day-to-day operations. The IRS prefers you name at least three individuals to serve as officers.

It is perfectly acceptable, however, to elect company officers who also serve as members of your board. For example, you can have a director/president, a director/vice president and a director/treasurer.
