How prepared is your board chair?
For the past year, I’ve been working with a research team of really smart colleagues (Debra Beck, Judy Freiwirth, Mike Burns and Mary Hiland) to better understand board chairs.
Chairs were asked two sets of questions around these topics:
- What they did to prepare for becoming chair
- How they understood their role in relation to the rest of the board, to the CEO and to their community.
The Alliance For Nonprofit Management is releasing a sneak peek infographic today with a few highlights from the study. The full report is due out in January.
Here’s just a taste of what we found.
