Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

November 2013)
?

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.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? 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.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. 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.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? 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?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? 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.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Program: Shelters for Typhoon Haiyan survivors in the Philippines (GuideStar Exchange,

Budget:

Category:
Emergency Shelter
Population Served:

None

Program Description:

Provide prefabricated SHELTERS & multipurpose metal buildings made in USA, for the Typhoon Haiyan survivors in the Philippines. The buildings can be used as health centers to provide first aid treatment, schools, cafeterias, operations centers and warehouses or storage. The building includes lifetime engineering warranty, blueprints, commercial 80 grade steel with Energy Star, hardware with plus coating hex, self locking nuts, polyethylene washers, salt spray tested bolts.

Program Long-Term Success:

This temporary & safe shelter would accommodate the victims and relieve to some extent, their suffering until a decision is made to rehabilitate the country and permanent homes can be available for the victims.

Program Short-Term Success:

There is an urgent need to build the facilities in order to move the people from the streets as quickly as possible.

Program Success Monitored by:

Filipino government, UN and international cooperation agencies and others NGO's, as International Red Cross.

Program Success Examples:

Our proposal includes different sizes of buildings for different use, as a solution to mitigate the present situation in a functional manner with a real humanitarian objective and goals to accommodate the victims, always under the nonprofit vision and framework. Actually, we have the designs for heavy duty buildings, which can be used as shelters, clinics, schools, and centers to provide hot meals up to 1200 people at the same time. In addition, we have smaller typical buildings to support the daily operations of NGO’s, International Cooperation Agencies, United Nations, Military personnel and any other entity proving services to the victims. We have categorized the use of the small building as fallow: manager and supervisor offices, technician’s offices, entertainment facilities, warehouse, maintenance shops, neighborhood kitchens for victims and volunteers and administration facilities. Within the approximate 2.0 million victim population, there are different conditions: married or unmarried, couples with our without children, single males and females, orphan children and infants, and seniors victims. Some of these survivors will be selected to carry out management and supervision duties in the rehabilitation of the cities, towns, and villages either by the Government, international cooperation agencies or private companies. For this category of individuals, we propose a supervisor for the shelter, considering that the responsibility will require more space, to concentrate in the planning after work hours and keep confidential documents of their duties in their room. A shelter for married or unmarried couples with or without children also should be essential to allow them some privacy and better care for the children. These shelters will use bunk beds to accommodate more people. The single adults (male and female) shelters will be separated in order to avoid promiscuous situations. These shelters will accommodate more victims with the use of bunk beds as well.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.
