Periodic Board Self-Assessment Questionnaires are a common best practice of Non Profit and Corporate Board of Directors. Generally speaking, Board self-assessment are much like having well-check health visits with your doctor. The examination helps identify mild symptoms of something that could lead to poor health if you choose not to address.
Board assessments are much like having that regular well-check ‘health’ visit. They tell the Board if there really is a problem or if problems are lurking just below the surface. They help identify gaps in the Board skill set, identify issues or concerns that when identified, discussed and collectively addressed help Boards improve their communications, decision-making, policy development, strengthen how they work together and remain accountable for their actions.
As a Board, we have collectively agreed and committed to participating in our first MVDC Board Self-Assessment. Your responses and other feedback will help us to be an even better leadership team as we carry out our mission to help eradicate racism in our beloved community and be a model for other communities.
This assessment questionnaire should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete. Please be sure to respond to all questions in the survey.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this Board Self-Assessment Survey and submitting your completed questionnaire by no later than Wednesday, September 29.
