NSG believes an effective board provides a foundation for the mission of the organization and a framework of expectations that make it possible for the management, staff and volunteers to focus upon the day-to-day tasks of making that mission a reality.
Simply put, without a strong board nonprofit organizations rarely have success in meeting both client and community needs.
Building an effective board is like creating a winning sports team. Recruiting talented players that fit the team, and training them to play their best, is key. Even the best of teams experience challenges, so providing a playbook of policies to build unity and enthusiasm for the mission and define how conflict will be resolved will go a long way toward making sure that the board fulfills its purpose.
NSG works with your organization's leadership to strategically build and grow your board. And we help you develop your playbook so your members feel confident in the organization's short- and long-term goals, budgetary outlook and their roles in advancing the issues that drew them to serve in the first place.
