Without strong staff, board, and governance structure, a nonprofit organization will not reach its potential. By engaging Mersky, Jaffe & Associates’ board development services, you will ensure that your volunteers are supportive, productive, responsive members of your team. As a result, you will be able to establish criteria for your leaders, define the broad range of their roles and responsibilities, and develop their underlying potential.
You deserve the best volunteers and professional leaders. People who are dedicated, knowledgeable, well-trained, articulate and fearless. With this in mind, we can help you enhance your leadership’s capabilities and realize their full potential. By giving your board the tools to become ever greater assets to your organization, you can focus on strengthening your mission and vision.
Good board development begins with a critical, self-reflective assessment. We provide the tools necessary for your organization to make an objective evaluation of the leadership team, collectively and individually.
Then, through a Mersky, Jaffe and Associates facilitated board development and governance program, you will ensure that the board consists of people who:
- articulate your mission and vision with passion and ease;
- represent your core values effectively;
- know your organizational history;
- communicate and solicit skillfully; and
- form a cohesive, committed team.
Because your leaders’ knowledge is vital to your organization’s success, when you implement a comprehensive board development program, you will enable these important people to make changes and lead your organization more effectively.
