Board Development & Governance

Board Development for nonprofits blackboardWithout strong leadership and governance, an organization will never succeed. Bearing this in mind, Mersky, Jaffe & Associates’ nonprofit board development services help ensure that your board and committee volunteers are supportive, productive and responsive members of your team. We help you establish criteria for your leaders and define the broad range of their roles and responsibilities. And, we help your principal participants develop their underlying potential.

  • Can the board articulate your mission and vision with passion and ease?
  • Will they effectively represent your core values?
  • How well does the board know your organizational history?
  • Do they need to strengthen their skills as communicators and solicitors?
  • Have they developed cohesiveness and commitment to the team?

Because your leaders’ knowledge is vital to your organization’s success, we help these important people understand the significance of these questions and the impact of their answers.

Ideally, each member of your Board, committee structure and volunteer community provides invaluable service to your institution. However, when it is time to undergo a critical, self-reflective assessment, Mersky, Jaffe & Associates provides the tools necessary for your organization to make an objective evaluation of the leadership team collectively and each individual member.

You deserve the best volunteers and professional leaders – people who are dedicated, knowledgeable, well-trained, articulate and fearless. We can help you enhance your leadership’s capabilities and realize their full potential by giving them the tools to become ever greater assets to your organization.
