Become a Highly Effective Nonprofit Board Chair in Seven Steps
Step 6: Reviews and assessments
Annual reviews and assessments are necessary for organizational improvement. As chairman of the board, you are responsible for ensuring that the CEO’s performance is reviewed each year and that annual review processes are implemented for all personnel.
You should also promote regular assessments of the organization’s successes and failures as well as a self-assessment of the performance of the board and its members.
Step 7: Strategic planning
Annual assessments provide opportunities to reflect upon past successes and failures, and to set goals for the future. Ideally, these goals should reflect the organization’s long-term strategic plan.
