Mr. Tony Perkins

Term:

Since Sept 2003

Profile:

Tony Perkins is President of the Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council.  He is a former member of the Louisiana legislature where he served for eight years, and he is recognized as a legislative pioneer for authoring measures like the nation's first Covenant Marriage law.  Although he had no opposition for re-election, he kept his pledge to serve only two terms and left office at the completion of his term in 2004.  He was a Republican candidate for the United States Senate in 2002.  Since joining FRC in the fall of 2003 he has launched new initiatives to affirm and defend the Judeo-Christian values that this nation is founded upon. Tony Perkins and FRC have led the way in defending religious freedom in the public square, protecting the unborn and their mothers, defending and strengthening one man/one woman marriage and promoting pro-family public policy.  Tony hosts a regular national radio program, "Washington Watch Weekly," broadcasts a daily commentary heard on over 300 stations nationwide, and sends daily email updates to tens of thousands of grassroots activists.  An effective communicator, he frequently appears on national broadcast and cable news programs.  Tony's first book, Personal Faith, Public Policy, co-authored with Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr., was released in March 2008. In addition, he has been a keynote speaker for organizations across the country.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

June 2012)
?

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

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

The Family Research Council is a recognized leader and contributor in a growing movement that identifies the nature of, and encourages our nation along the path to, a happy and prosperous society. We achieve this goal by developing and promoting a clearer understanding of the need for public policies that promote: ·        the sanctity of human life, ·        the proper nature of human sexuality in the context of marriage, ·        the fundamental importance of religious citizens practicing our faith in freedom, and ·        a robust democratic system of government that protects ordered liberty.   FRC has been honored to help accomplish major victories for American families.  Just a few are listed below.   - Tax relief we designed and promoted (including the child tax credit and marriage penalty relief) has returned over $842 billion to families since 1996.   - Promoted Coverdell Education Savings Accounts, in which over $5 billion has been invested for children’s education.   - Promoted Health Savings Accounts, which have improved health care options for over 6 million Americans (35% previously uninsured).   - Protection of traditional marriage: FRC promotes one man-one woman marraige across the country, and has helped protect marriage in many states, including California, Maine, Florida and Arizona. We also helped advance the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 1996.   - Protected innocent life through efforts in support of the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act in 2007 - Supported originalist judges Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito, appointed to the Supreme Court in 2006   - Advanced federal domestic abstinence education funding, which totaled $1.5 billion between 1997 - 2001   - Countless victories for the family each day, often behind the scenes on Capitol Hill
