Board Development

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

Board diversity is important in the organization’s life cycle. There are many ways a board can be diverse:

  • Geographic
  • Ethnic/Racial
  • Gender
  • Skills/Expertise
  • Clients/Grantees
  • Age
  • Ability
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Religion/Culture

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