Board Mastermind – Resources        Board Self-Evaluation

board mastermind series 1

In the most recent Leading with Intent survey, a governance survey conducted by BoardSource, only a slight majority (51%) of organizations reported they use a formal, written self-assessment to evaluate their board’s effectiveness. The bottom line is that effective boards are those that regularly and candidly ask themselves: “How can we do better?”

Before engaging in a self-assessment process, the National Council of Nonprofits invites boards to answer two fundamental questions: “Why does this nonprofit exist?” and “How can our board help advance the mission?”
