Leadership Statement:

I love the focus of our report to the community and all stakeholders for 2012 on inter generational hope – for what else should we focus on but the continued healing and wellness of all members of our families? We cannot silo one individual or one issue and approach it as the sole problem requiring our attention; rather we intentionally use a holistic framework that incorporates all generations and systems in designing and delivering strength based community services. In the past year, this agency once again served over 4,000 individuals with a continuum of direct service, community engagement, and systems change activities. We joined a national network of individuals and organizations dedicated to re-igniting the movement to end violence against girls and women through our membership in the NoVo Foundation’s Move to End Violence. The agency embarked on an exploration of what a more culturally congruent leadership structure looks like for a Native non-profit, and is now building internal leadership development protocols within our workforce. Our focus on combining thoughtful research and community input has helped us create innovative new services to better meet the needs of our community, urge transformational social change, and ground our operations in transparency and accountability. We never do this work in a vacuum. We rely upon partners and supporters like you. As I write this, we are finalizing our 2014 – 2016 Strategic Plan. It gives us a clear direction – to focus on being proactive, connected, and courageous. Our community deserves no less from us and we look forward to working with all of you to build the hope of the next generation. -Suzanne Koepplinger

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

October 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?
Response Not Provided
