Board Organizational Guidelines

Project Details

What We Need
  • Review of current board policies and procedures
  • Document outlining best practices for meetings and communication, including cadence and tool recommendations
Additional Details

I am looking for a review of our current Bylaws.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have comprehensive Bylaws reviewed by Gov. Comm annually, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have annual board self-evaluation survey results, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $7,610 , allowing us to use our Board as ambassadors to advance our mission. Thank you!

We have a large Board of Directors and this project will help us more efficiently and effectively work with the Board to advance our mission.
