Getting Our Boards Back on Board

Several of you have come to GPP and NPA saying, “My board needs help!” Challenges include:

  • Board members getting very comfortable with zooming and multitasking while doing so – how do we pull them back in post-COVID?
  • Board attendance slipping because members are busy with their own COVID stresses at home and work
  • Boards failing on responsibilities like evaluating the executive director
  • How to follow through on non-COVID aspirations for boards, like attendance policies, self-evaluation, getting them to read materials

Our organizations are in a time of transition – moving from virtual to in-person, moving from crisis to recovery, looking at mission expansion or mission re-alignment. Now is a great time to look at how to make this transition in a way that positions our board for success. Addy Matney with TMPR presented on practices for boards to consider – some specific to reengagement after COVID and some to stimulate more board effectiveness overall.  Click here for Addy’s presentation and click above to view the full meeting.

We encourage you and your board leaders to join us on Tuesday, June 8th from 2 – 3:30 for a meeting to review some board basics and to support you in creating or furthering a productive board/staff relationship!  Click here to register.
