Board Development

Board Development

Boards are an important aspect of non-profit growth. boardBut sometimes the board needs to grow beyond the original founding group and advance to the next level of the organizational life cycle. Sometimes boards do not know about the life cycle of an organization and how it needs to evolve. And other times the line between board and staff roles may be blurry.

Board diversity is important for the long-term success of your organization. There are many ways a board can be diverse:

  • Skills/Expertise
  • Age
  • Geographical
  • Race/Ethnicity
  • Gender
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Clients/Grantees
  • Ability
  • Religion/Culture

We can help you define what types of board members your organization needs to evolve, help you develop a plan to attain board diversity, as well as sharpen the differing roles of board and staff.
