Starts April 29th! - Spring Webinar Series: Nonprofit Strategy is More than Planning Limited Space Register Today!

Recently I published a blog post about the core attributes of a strong nonprofit board of directors as part of an informal series of articles related to board development. This series can be found here. My writing on the subject comes from the “blended” perspectives of being both a nonprofit consultant as well as a from my personal service as a “serial” board member for several different organizations.

This blog is a follow-up to a couple of emails I received in response to my last post about how useful the information was.  One question I received was “Do you have a checklist that we could use to help us in our next board meeting?”   You asked. I deliver. In this post I present “Ten Steps for Building an Effective Nonprofit Board: A Checklist for Action” This free 12-page PDF document is  not designed to be an exhaustive guide to developing and staffing a board. Rather is a practice-based assessment tool that summarized ten nonprofit board essentials that boards can use as a conversation starter about its strength and effectiveness. It also offers a short list of actionable ideas to improve board functioning for each element.

In addition to overviewing the ten principles, I included a board composition worksheet, a short bibliography, and an action planing worksheet. It is my goal to empower boards to excel through self-exploration. Yet I am also aware that there are times when you need a fresh, imaginative, and objective perspective. For those times, facilitation and Process would love to partner with your agency to meet your strategy and performance goals.
