It will be important to also be a representative and face or voice for the objectives of DiF and its stakeholders.
It's not necessary and you can stay behind the scenes, but having a publically active voice as Executive Board Member like doing talks or presentations helps grow the organisation and tends to draw in more sponsors, which means of course getting financially rewarded for your efforts. It also helps to grow professionally.
Starting the role is entirely volunteer based, but once there are financial gains, they will receive remuneration.
