What Makes a Board Choose to Get Better? How Does it Happen?

Share your experience
At the BoardSource Conference last November, Jane and I met Mary Hiland, LCSW, PhD, a board researcher and consultant from California who was in the midst of researching how boards improve their operation or “get better”. At that time, she had already interviewed more than 20 board and staff leaders of organizations whose boards were better now, in some meaningful way, than they had been in the past.

I told her what a knowledgeable base of nonprofit leaders we had among our readership and we agreed that a short survey might assist in her research – and we get early access to her findings. If you have been part of an organization that has seen a real improvement in the way the board works, she has a short, nine question survey for you to complete. If you desire, you can identify yourself and she may call you for additional clarification. Here’s the link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/86F8NTP .

Please complete it by Jan 30. You may complete it more than once if you can cite more than one example.
