?

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

This section is not a requirement for any of the Exchange participation levels - Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Instead, it is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff.

Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).

Program Description:

The Marine Mammal Center is the only organization authorized by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration to rescue stranded marine mammals within a 600-mile rescue range. Veterinary Science We rescue 600-800 marine mammals every year, making us the largest marine mammal center in the world. We develop response plans to maximize animal welfare and human safety, and minimize impact on the environment. We complete diagnostic and treatment plans for every animal we admit Scientific Research The Center has been a primary investigator or collaborator on half of all peer-reviewed research on marine mammal health in North America. We research the epidemiology and pathogenesis of marine mammal cancer and other diseases and we conduct and support on-site and field-based investigations including for endangered species. Education We provide formal and informal environmental and marine science education including public tours, exhibitions, family overnights, summer camp, and volunteer programs. Our school programs support the Next Generation Science Standards. We have admitted more than 19,500 marine animals in our 40-year history. In 2014, we answered more than 5,000 phone calls to our stranding line and admitted 1,030 marine mammals, which was a 79% increase over 2013 admits. We are on track to exceed those numbers in 2015. The majority of these animals are California sea lions, Steller sea lions, Pacific harbor seals, Northern elephant seals, northern and Guadalupe fur seals, Southern sea otters, and occasionally various species of whales, sea turtles, and dolphins. Our formal and informal marine science and environmental education programs and events reached more than 100,000 in 2014. In addition, we hosted more than 800 onsite and offsite programs for pre-k through adults. Our work is vital to the global conservation of marine mammals and we are a critical member of the National Marine Mammal Stranding Network and the Oiled Wildlife Care Network. Last year, under the direction of Senior Scientist Dr. Frances Gulland, who is one of three presidentially-appointed U.S. Marine Mammal Commissioners, our scientific research contributed to more than 44 international research studies and our veterinary science team published approximately one dozen articles in peer-reviewed science journals.

Program Long-Term Success:

Each year our Veterinary Science staff has an off-site retreat at which it reviews and evaluates its performance for the current year. This evaluation includes reviews of specific cases, revisions of medical and husbandry protocols, and enhancements to staff and volunteer training processes. Specifically, they use the following indicators to measure effectiveness: review annual survival rates and determine the cause of death of each animal to evaluate treatment protocols for specific diseases; provide veterinary medical care for every mammal who is admitted to our Sausalito hospital and satellite facilities; rehabilitate and release every mammal who is able to eat fish and to survive in the wild; participate in 40 or more national and international research studies by sharing tissue and blood samples from necropsies; publish more than 10 peer-reviewed authored or co-authored papers; answer every call to the 24 hour stranding hotline and take action as appropriate.

Program Short-Term Success:

In 2014, we answered more than 5,000 phone calls to our stranding line and admitted 1,030 marine mammals, which was a 79% increase over 2013 admits. We are on track to exceed those numbers in 2015. Thus far, we have successfully answered every call to the 24 hour stranding hotline and taken action as appropriate, even with the significant demand for our services.

Program Success Monitored by:

The Veterinary Science team carefully charts and documents all care provided to patients in the Sausalito and in our satellite facilities.

Program Success Examples:

Chris Cove is a malnourished elephant seal pup. This little one was rescued from San Mateo and is one of the many malnourished elephants seals that were rescued by our stranding crew. At 1-2 months, she should weigh 300 pounds, but unfortunately she stranded at just 66 pounds. She is receiving veterinary medical care from our veterinary science team with the goal of releasing her when she is well.
