Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

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?

Participants in all of our programs are urged to complete in-take and out-take surveys where learning and social skills can be measured. Process journals and video evaluation methods are also employed. In our more academic residencies, improvements in standard test scores such as the MCAS and Degrees of Reading Power exams are measured. Following every program year, the Huntington conducts an internal review of its programs' change capacity.

Program Description:

The Huntington Theatre Company was instrumental in raising the funds for, designing, and building the Stanford J. Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts. The Pavilion opened in 2004, and the Huntington operates the facility on behalf of all the organizations that use its performance spaces, rehearsal halls and meeting rooms. While there is a focus on performing arts, the Pavilion was also built to serve the community and be a local hub of cultural activity. The Pavilion's venues include the 370-seat Virginia Wimberly Theatre and the 220-seat Roberts Studio Theatre. There are also two large rehearsal halls that have evolved into smaller performance venues to meet the needs of smaller theatre companies whose works require a more intimate setting. Pavilion support operations include providing box office services, front-of-house management, online marketing and ticketing services through Boston Theatre Scene, and technical production support.

Program Long-Term Success:

Since the Calderwood Pavilion opened in 2004, there have been over 5,800 performances of more than 287 productions by over 40 performing groups for an audience of over 650,000 generating nearly $20,000,000 in ticket revenue for small performing arts organizations.

Program Short-Term Success:

In the 2012-2013 season the Calderwood Pavilion served 60 organizations of all types, 33 of them performing arts groups. The Huntington generated revenue of over $1,000,000 for over a dozen small performing arts organizations by selling over 44,000 tickets for their 25 productions.

Program Success Monitored by:

The Calderwood Pavilion operations are evaluated based on keeping the performance and meeting venues fully rented, on providing exceptional customer service to all who use the Pavilion, and on the audience numbers for the year.

Program Success Examples:

Since the Huntington opened and started managing the Calderwood Pavilion in 2004, it has deepened its leadership role in Boston's cultural community, promoting a vital arts presence in Boston's South End neighborhood and serving as a core resource for dozens of small to mid-size performing arts organizations that use the Calderwood Pavilion and the other theatres at the Boston Center for the Arts. The Huntington has helped some of Boston's best small theatre companies expand their artistic capacity and their audiences by providing subsidized rental fees, technical support, front-of-house staff, an increased web presence and live and on-line ticketing services.

Huntington Playwriting Fellow Melinda Lopez is in the second year of a three-year playwright residency, where her primary objective is to write plays but where she also participates in the Huntington's subscription season play selection and other new play development activities. The Huntington also emphasizes the second production of new works, often providing playwrights who have had a new play premiered an opportunity to further refine its focus.

Program Long-Term Success:

In 2013, the Huntington received the Regional Theatre Tony Award. The award committee cited the Huntington's work in new play development as a key reason for the honor.

Through managing the Calderwood Pavilion, the Huntington has helped some of Boston's best small theatre companies expand their artistic capacity and their audiences by providing subsidized rental fees, technical support, front-of-house staff, an increased web presence and live and on-line ticketing services. EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY PROGRAM ACCOMPLISHMENTS The Student Matinee Series In the 2013-2014 Season, 67 middle schools and high schools (including 20 Boston schools) brought 3,537 students to the Huntington's Student Matinee Series, including 1,261 free tickets. Additionally, after its student matinee performances reached capacity, the Huntington's Education Department arranged for 101 students to attend a regular performance at the student matinee price. Teachers had the opportunity to attend a free Teacher Preview Night for each of the productions that had a Student Matinee performance to give them the opportunity to see the play before bringing their students to the theatre. Teacher Previews included pre-performance meet-and-greet events with the education staff, offering teachers the chance to speak directly with the staff about the Student Matinee Series and the specific production. All Student Matinee performances included a post-show discussion with the actors where the students engaged directly with the performers. Codman Academy Collaboration In the 2014-2015 academic year, the Huntington enters its 14th year of collaboration with the Codman Academy Charter Public School in Dorchester. The Huntington has an innovative residency program with Codman Academy where ninth and tenth graders come to the Huntington for two full school days each month, studying a theatre and humanities curriculum based on the Huntington's productions. This partnership serves 145 high school students each year, and Codman students' literacy test scores continue to increase at a rate that dramatically exceeds the average increase among their Boston peers. The Huntington also offers a summer program for Codman students, The Codman Academy Summer Theatre Institute, that involves Codman students in the performance of a Shakespearean play. In July 2014, the program produced William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Over 200 members of the community came to support the 22 students involved. August Wilson Monologue Competition The August Wilson Monologue Competition is an eight-week in-classroom program for 500 Boston public high school students. Funded in part by the BPS Arts Expansion Initiative at EdVestors, the competition program gives students a unique arts education opportunity combining reading the dramatic literature of August Wilson, historical context for his Century Cycle, dramatic recitation of Mr. Wilson's work, and individual coaching for students in preparing for the local and national competitions. The majority of the 11 schools in the program were initially selected because they had been identified as having little or no arts education. The 2014 Boston regional competition was held in February at the Huntington's Calderwood Pavilion and covered by The Boston Globe. The top three finalists were Boston Regional Champion Trinidad Ramkissoon (Boston Day & Evening Academy), First Runner-Up Ashley Herbert (Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers), and Second Runner-Up Dinia Clairveaux (Snowden International School).In May, these three students traveled to New York City for the national competition, where Ashley Herbert won the national competition. Denzel Washington was one of the competition judges and provided the students with an inspiring address onstage. ""This competition really changed my views about life. I came there not thinking that I would ever do acting again, but it made me feel that if you really try your best and you really focus on it, you can really achieve something big.''—Ashley Herbert, 2014 National August Wilson Monologue Competition Winner, speaking with The Boston Globe Poetry Out Loud Funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry Foundation, and with local support from Brookline Bank, Poetry Out Loud brings the oral art form to high schools across the country. The state program, a partnership with the Massachusetts Cultural Council, has grown tremendously in nine years under the Huntington's management. In 2014, 24,479 students from 84 schools participated. The Massachusetts competition ranked in the top five nationally for school, student, and teacher participation. This year the Massachusetts winners were Massachusetts Poetry Out Loud Champion Courtney Stewart (Springfield Central High School and winner of the 2013 Massachusetts Poetry Out Loud Competition), First Runner-Up Stephanie Igharosa (Randolph High School), and Second Runner-Up Darlande Joseney (Avon Middle High School). Access Programming The Huntington provides programming that makes the theatre more accessible for all members of our community with American Sign Language interpretation of selected performances for our Deaf and hard-of-hearing patrons as well as audio description for blind and low-vision theatergoers. The Huntington has a state-of-the-art FM hearing enhancement system in its performance venues. Assistive listening devices, large-print programs and Braille programs are available at all Huntington performances. Each year the Huntington's Education Department facilitates conversations with the Deaf and blind communities to choose productions for ASL interpretation and audio description. ""The Huntington Theatre Company is the only theatre company in Boston and the Greater Boston area that is this highly committed to making theatre accessible to everyone. Season after season they remain consistent in their programming, and are always a joy to work with.""—Wendy Watson, ASL Interpreter and Teacher Community Membership Program The Community Membership program provides a free membership that allows any enrolled member to purchase $15 tickets for best-available seats to any performance, giving lower-income theatregoers the same customer service experience as any other ticket buyer. Our Community Membership Coordinator focuses on building relationships with community organizations that serve lower income people. There are more than 200 organizations enrolled with members aged from teen to seniors and with a particular focus on participants of color. There are currently 1,951 members enrolled with 5,167 tickets sold to date, including 2,292 in the 2013-2014 Season. Community Connections The Community Connections program provides reduced-cost and free ticket opportunities for groups from community-serving organizations to attend Huntington productions. This program differs from the Community Membership program because it is a group purchase model. Each year the Huntington works with community human service organizations such as the Boston Aging Concern, AIDS Action Committee and VSA Arts, to provide free or dramatically discounted tickets to underserved populations. In the 2013-2014 Season, Community Connections provided over 1,627 reduced-cost tickets, including 727 free tickets, for over 100 community based-organizations throughout Greater Boston.
