GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.
Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed.
They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them.
BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service.
Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board's most important legal responsibilities. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.
Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance.
Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.
