Boldly Breaking Through: Building the Board Your Org Deserves

An effective, efficient and contributing board of directors can guide an NGO to greatness–boasting unmatched service, motivated and committed staff, access to financial and other needed resources, and so much more! Great boards, however, don’t just happen. They are designed. They are cultivated. They are well-managed.

Do you spend time nurturing, orienting and/or acclimating new board members to their respective roles?

Do you know how best to manage the differing personalities on your Board of Directors?

Have you set expectations of time, in-kind and financial contributions for your board members?
