Project details

What we need
  • Assessment of existing board procedure, policy, set of guidelines, or system
  • Creation of one document outlining one procedure, policy, operations, or set of guidelines, for example: bylaws, board meeting procedure, succession planning guidelines, committee policies, board member orientation handbook, etc.
What we have in place
  • We currently have 7 board members, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have constitution and policies, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $10,298 , allowing us to focus on delivering more impact to the young people that we are reaching

Having a clear structure, and ways of working for the board will help to provide effective support for RLabs Tz, and ensure a fruitful and satisfactory use of board member time.
