Board Self-Assessment

Assessing your Strength

Boards need to take time on a regular basis to check-in and evaluate both the strengths of the board and the areas that need improvement.  Boards are made up of individuals having a wide variety of perspectives and opinions. Regular board-assessment can help identify where there are disconnects and where the goals and actions are clear.


A limited number of resources are available to you if you are not logged in or are not yet a member of the Center. To gain access to all of the resources on this page:
