Executive Directors Discuss Board Best Practices

This month our Executive Director Roundtable discussed Board Best Practices. Here are some takeaways, in no particular order:
  • Have clear written expectations
  • Have a responsible board chair
  • Use best practices as a lever to improve board performance (look at ECFA and Foundation Center for ideas)
  • Qualify board members by having them serve as volunteers, or other proof of commitment.
