05 May 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.
