BOARDS AND COMMITTEES:

They are volunteers, too!
Look here for information and the latest techniques to develop your board or committee. The purpose is to help those who work or serve on nonprofit boards of directors or committees.

My New Year's Resolutions

As we think about the New Year and our resolutions, we need to think of our role as a board member and what we can do better. Consider the following and check those that are ways you can improve your service to your organization:

I will make every effort to attend all board meetings.
I will read my board packet before board meetings.
I will pencil in questions on the board packet so that I can research them in advance and/or bring them up at the meeting.
I will suggest names of potential board members to the nominating committee.
I will make an appropriate financial contribution to the organization.
I will ascertain that we have a conflict of interest policy.
I will make certain we have an audit committee.
I will make sure we evaluate the outcomes of our programs regularly.
