Board Self-Evaluation Survey

Boards should periodically evaluate themselves against best practices. Here is a proven board evaluation survey instrument we have designed and used many times in our work and you can administer yourself. It covers strategic thinking and planning, fiduciary responsibilities, selection and orientation, board operation, and board-staff relationship. Of course, we will be glad to administer the survey, tabulate the results and work with your board to address the findings. Just call us at 703-691-2440 for a quote.
