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?

Program Description:

Our work on environmental health focuses around educating the public, the medical community and the legislature on the linkages between environmental exposures and health effects. We seek to activate and empower the community to protect the environment and public health and to provide resources to do so. We focus particularly on climate change, hydraulic fracturing, and environmental toxins. To participate in public policy debates on public health and environment issues

Program Success Examples:

Clean Energy - We've recently joined with more than twenty business, faith, labor, consumer, public health and environmental groups to form the Sunshine State Clean Energy Coalition. The coalition is advocating for Florida's largest utility companies to invest in clean, local solar energy. We are calling on Duke Energy to invest in solar power to boost Florida's economy, keep energy dollars in state, and bring clean air to communities. Greening Physician Offices - PSR/Florida board member, Dr. Todd Sack continues his success with the Florida Medical Association and "My Green Doctor" effort. My Green Doctor is a FREE practice management tool for saving money in physician offices and for creating a healthier workplace. Climate Change - 2013 marked the 5th anniversary of our T.Terrell Sessums award for environmental stewardship. The award was presented to Peter Clark of Tampa Bay Watch for his efforts in protecting the waters of Tampa Bay. The ceremony was held at the University Club of Tampa in conjunction with USF Health's Dean Lecture. Keynote speakers, George Luber, PhD, from the CDC and Meredith Jagger, MS, from the Florida Department of Health, spoke on the public health consequences of climate change. Board members Drs. Kevin Sherin and Lynn Ringenberg are members of the Technical Advisors Group of the state-wide BRACE project. The Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) Program at the Florida Department of Health is working to improve the ability of the public health sector to respond to health effects related to climate variability. The program is developing a climate and health profile that will identify and describe key risk factors and health impacts anticipated in Florida. The program is also conducting a formal vulnerability assessment to quantify and map the geographic distribution of weather-related risk factors and vulnerable populations. Hydraulic Fracturing - PSR Florida physicians are working with Preserve Our Paradise, a non-profit organization, that is actively fighting drilling and fracking in the Golden Gate Estates in Naples on the edge of the Everglades. In collaboration with other environmental groups we've held screenings of the award winning documentaries Gasland I and Gasland II in the Tampa and Tallahassee areas. Toxics - We continue to advocate for chemical policy reform. Board member Yolanda Whyte, MD participated in the national Stroller Brigade in Washington, DC. The hundreds of parents, children and advocates descended on Congress to ask them to strengthen the current Chemical Improvement Safety Act which doesn't adequately protect pregnant women, children or vulnerable communities. Dr. Whyte also participated in FL Public Interest Research Group's Trouble in Toyland Press Conference to release their annual toy safety report. Key findings identified toxic chemicals in toys include lead, cadmium and phthalates in levels exceeding current federal standards. Dr. Whyte stressed the importance of national chemical reform to keep toxic chemicals out of consumer products. We've partnered with San Francisco PSR to update the Pediatric Environmental Health Toolkit to include new chemicals of concern and prenatal information not included in the original version. We will be developing an app based on the Toolkit this year.

Program: Nuclear Weapons/Nuclear Power (GuideStar Exchange,

Program Description:

To promote safe, clean energy and to promote a world free of nuclear weapons.

Program Long-Term Success:

We worked with local groups to draw attention to the billions of dollars Duke Energy received from tax payers in nuclear cost recovery fees. Fees that utilities charge ratepayers in advance for nuclear projects. Ultimately we wanted the law repealed. This request failed however amendments that weaken the law were passed and in 2014 a bill was introduced to repeal the law.

Program Short-Term Success:

Published Letters to the Editor and Op-Eds on the dangers of nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Letter to the Editor on Invest in Solar and Wind, Tampa Bay Times. http://www.tampabay.com/opinion/letters/thursdays-letters-tarnished-job-golden-parachute/1274044 Letter by Dr. Lynn Ringenberg published in the Tampa Bay Times “Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Solemn anniversaries” http://www.tampabay.com/opinion/letters/saturdays-letters-young-va-volunteers-deserve-recognition/2135533 Dr. Lynn Ringenberg had an OP-Ed published in the Tampa Bay Times. Work to rid the world of nuclear weapons. http://www.tampabay.com/opinion/letters/saturdays-letters-work-to-rid-the-world-of-nuclear-weapons/2157987 Dr. Lynn Ringenberg had an OP-Ed published in the Tallahassee Democrat. http://www.tallahassee.com/article/20131224/OPINION05/312240004/Lynn-Ringenberg-Nuclear-weapons-still-pose-huge-threat The USF Student Chapter held a Peace Luncheon and showed a documentary to commemorate the tragic Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings.

Program Success Monitored by:

Dr. Ringenberg is a member of the Radiation and Health Committee.

Program Success Examples:

Dr. Lynn Ringenberg participated in the release of the PSR and IPPNW report "Nuclear Famine: Two Billion People at Risk?". This scientific report found that the climatic effects of a "limited" nuclear war between Pakistan and India would cut crop production worldwide, putting up to 2.3 billion people at risk of starvation, cause a 10% decrease in corn and soybean production in the U.S. for a decade. Not to mention the more than 20 million people dead within a week from the explosions, firestorms and acute radiation exposure. In response to the profound threat of any use of nuclear weapons, momentum is building around the world for a treaty eliminating them. President Obama's actions should match his words in support of a nuclear weapons-free world. SAFE ENERGY - We work with local organizations to prevent more government subsidies to the nuclear power industry; to prevent the construction of new nuclear reactors; and to educate the public and elected officials of the economic and health risks of nuclear power and reprocessing of spent fuel.

Program Description:

Program Long-Term Success:

We have had a very active student chapter at the University of South Florida for the past 5 years. We work very closely with the students. They were represented at the 2013 PSR Chapter Leaders Meeting, the annual Sessums Award and they plan to attend the 2014 Chapter Leaders Meeting in Iowa. The students organize lunch and learn sessions throughout the year. Specifics are listed on our 2013 Activities List. Board member Jeannette Fleischer mentors the students as they participate in the twice monthly Kids Klinic. The Kids Klinic was started by the students a few years ago. They use the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile to visit homeless shelters and provide care for pediatric patients. The students also have a partnership that they started last year with the local student AMA chapter and Wellness Council. Together they organized and continue to participate in a local nutrition and environmental education program at the USF Patel Partnership elementary school. The program teaches young children about growing their own food, the importance of a healthy environment and making good choices.

Program Success Examples:

Board members Dr. Lonnie Draper and Dr. Jefry Biehler are pursing starting Student Chapters at Florida State University and the Florida International University in Miami respectively. Students at both schools have expressed interest; we will work with both groups to get their chapters up and running in 2014.

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.

We strive to bring the medical and public health voice to slow, stop and reverse global warming and toxic degradation of the environment, to promote safe efficient energy solutions and to prevent nuclear war and proliferation of nuclear weapons.
