What We Need
- 1-2 page summary of takeaways and trends from interviewing key individuals (no more than 8 interviews total)
- Identification of the board’s strengths and recommendations for areas of improvement for board members collectively and individually
We have 10 board members and we do a semi-annual board self-assessment. We are looking for a new/fresh approach or tool for this exercise.
What We Have In Place
- We currently have past assessment tools, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a board handbook, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,773 , allowing us to allocate more funding for grant awards.
Improve board governance and effectiveness.
