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
Our organization has twelve board members -- six who have served for a long time, and six who are relatively new. We would like to create and empower a Board Development (Recruitment) Committee by having them engage in a board assessment project and we would like some tools, guidance, and support to make this happen and ultimately strengthen our board of directors. Thank you.
What We Have In Place
- We currently have committed and experienced staff leadership, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have talented board of directors with a lot of potential, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,773 , allowing us to not only use these resources to find other ways to meet our goals, but ultimately to magnify our efforts with stronger board leadership.
It is an organization with a vital mission and a solid track record, but there is much more potential to be realized.
About The Org
Center for Health Care Rights
The Center for Health Care Rights (CHCR) is a nonprofit health care advocacy organization dedicated to the mission of assuring consumer access to quality health care through education, counseling, informal advocacy and legal services. CHCR's Medicare direct services empower elderly and disabled consumers and their family members to use Medicare, Medi-Cal and other health benefits effectively, make informed health care choices and take appropriate action to resolve their health care problems. Since 1984, CHCR has provided free Medicare advocacy and health insurance counseling services to thousands of Medicare beneficiaries and their families in Los Angeles County annually.
What We Do
Program services include counseling and informal advocacy (to help clients understand their Medicare and Medi-Cal rights and benefits, obtain access to programs that provide help with medical expenses, and help resolve access to care problems within the Medicare and Medi-Cal programs); community education and outreach (via free educational seminars on Medicare, Medi-Cal, and other health care topics for Medicare consumers, caregivers, and health and social service providers); and legal assistance (with staff attorneys providing Medicare beneficiaries with legal advice and/or representation to resolve serious Medicare and Medi-Cal access to care problems or claim denials).
