?

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?
Yes
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?
Yes
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?
Yes
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?
Yes
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?
Yes

Programs

Program: Low cost spay/neuter (GuideStar Exchange,

October 2014)

Budget:
--
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

1. Low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for low-income families, including 4 high-volume SpayDays events. (2,000 spay/neuter surgeries annually) 2. Pet-facilitated therapy to senior centers and schools; 531 pet therapy visits to 28 different facilities. 3. Humane education programs for elementary schools and scout troops. 4.Career training for special education high-school students. 5. Open Paw Program, provides humane treatment of shelter animals by providing them with a minimum of mental health requirements. Over 200 volunteers have received 4 levels of training in the open paw program.

Program Long-Term Success:

The whelping room project saved 3 mothers and 28 pups from euthanasia in Ohio. It also prevented the birth of about 200 puppies the following year, by sterilizing the mothers and their puppies. The puppies are more likely to stay in their adoptive home because of socialization and behavior training. The project also provided an educational experience for adopters, staff and volunteers to learn about animal behaviors and to perform/practice the behavior training they learned. We also made significant progress in our quest to end unnecessary euthanasia of friendly companion animals by 2015.

Adoption We have focused on increasing adoptions to be able to accept as many homeless pets as possible. To increase adoptions we have extended our open hours to 7 days a week adding an additional 16 hours to adopt pets. We have increased off-site adoption locations to reach adopters that ordinarily would not come to a shelter. We have also planned special sale weekends and prices on older dogs and cats to promote their adoption.  Spay/Neuter Center To decrease the crisis of pet overpopulation SICSA sterilizes all pets before adoption and provides Spay/Neuter Services for the community.   The Community Spay/Neuter Program is for low-middle income families throughout the Miami Valley providing low-cost spay/neuter, vaccines and preventative medicines for their pets and three high volume clinics called “Neuter Day”.   Humane Education Students and scout groups experience hands-on learning in their classroom or at our facility through Camp SICSA a Humane Education program for PreK-8th grade students; learning empathy, respect, kindness and responsibility towards animals.   Accomplishments Our website won the Hermes Award for best design Collaborated with other animal shelters and rescue groups transferring 143 dogs to SICSA to increase adoptions of homeless pets Taught 1,000 pre-K – 8th grade students humane education Spayed or neutered over 2,000 pets for low-middle income families, strays and ferals, including vaccines and preventative treatments Pet Therapy volunteers made 250 visits with homeless puppies and kittens to nursing homes, senior centers and homeless shelters.
