Impact statement
This project will save us $10,298 , allowing us to support balancing our revenues/expenses for the current fiscal year (2018-19).

Project Details

What We Need
  • Analysis of the board of directors' governance practices, stewardship, membership, revenue generation and executive management
  • Identification of the board’s strengths and recommendations for areas of improvement for board members collectively and individually
Additional Details

Need to develop a "survey monkey" type board assessment to go out to all board members with capacity to aggregate responses into a report for the boards review and acceptance. This information should be able to feed into the development of a board -developed one-year strategic plan for July 2019-June 2020 that is linked to our current three-year strategic plan (2018-2021)

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have three-year startegic plan/summary of last board assessment, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have other board-related materials, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

As a Standards of Excellence accredited agency, we are required to complete a board assessment at least every other year.

Project Plan

  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with past reviews or board performance evaluations, if any

Milestone 1: Research
  • Professional connects with Volunteer Manager for a brainstorming/overview session
  • Professional receives a list of board members and relevant executive management to interview or survey
  • Professional drafts survey and interview questions for the key stakeholders
Milestone 2: Interviews and Evaluation
  • Professional conducts surveys and interviews with key stakeholders
  • Professional reviews any relevant materials regarding the board’s performance
  • Professional summarizes feedback and drafts recommendations for areas of improvement
  • Volunteer Manager provides feedback to Professional’s summary
