Successful boards pay attention to the process of how they operate and hold themselves accountable for good performance. Take time every year to formally evaluate board performance. The purpose of the evaluation is not to find fault with board members or the full board, but to identify strengths and areas for improvement. The board evaluation should be followed with a plan to improve.
There are three assessments that follow, two for you as an individual board member and one to assess the board as a whole. Feel free to photocopy and use these assessments.
