Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

March 2014)
?

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:

Through our Health & Environment (www.neefusa.org/health) program we are working with medical and nursing schools across the country to provide environmental education training to healthcare providers ontopics such as the environmental triggers of pediatric asthma. We are also enlisting pediatricians to “prescribe” time in nature in the effort to get kids and their families outdoors as part of a healthy lifestyle. We are creating incentives through partnerships with local public land managers and community organizations to encourage patients and their families to go to easily accessible green spaces in their communities. We are piloting this concept in Children’s Forests managed by the US Forest Service and in the City of New Orleans in a project supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Program Long-Term Success:

Environmental knowledge among health professionals is advanced. The public's health is improved, including children and underserved populations. Environmental health is fully integrated and institutionalized into healthcare practice. Every pediatrician uses the environmental history form and implements environmental management of asthma. All medical, nursing, PA, etc. schools educate on environmental management of pediatric asthma and environmental history taking. NEEF tools and resources (Asthma Guidelines materials, history forms, etc) are widely used.

Program Short-Term Success:

Trained Champions sustain their programs and other sites using NEEF’s replicable model. More than 10,000 healthcare providers are trained as Champions throughout the United States. Tools and resources are widely distributed to our target audience through partners, networks, professional conference exhibition, etc.  New partnerships are built through our networks and outreach to collaborate, exchange ideas, and share resources.

Program Success Monitored by:

numbers trained, trainings conducted, materials distributed, curriculum integration (including noon lectures and other institutional series), textbook and national guideline integration, pre- and post-test surveys (asthma)

Program Success Examples:

Children’s Environmental Health Faculty Champions: A study entitled Children’s Environmental Health Faculty Champions Initiative: A Successful Model for Integrating Environmental Health into Pediatric Healthcare was published in the May 2009 issue of Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP), the peer-reviewed journal of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. EHP ranks second among 132 environmental health journals and has a readership of 160,000 per month.  The study evaluated the program through which NEEF’s 28 Faculty Champions trained 1,559 healthcare professionals in pediatric environmental health in one year, highly exceeding the project goal of 280 healthcare professionals trained.  In addition, 90% of Faculty Champions reported that pediatric environmental health had been incorporated into the curricula at their institution. The study concludes that the initiative was highly effective, demonstrating that the Faculty Champions model is a successful method which can be replicated in other arenas. Nature Workshops: The Children and Nature Initiative held its pilot Nature Champion Train-the-Trainer Workshop in Brooklyn, NY at the Prospect Park Zoo and Audubon Center on May 15, 2010. The September 24-26, 2010 Nature Champion Train-the-Trainer Workshop trained 25 pediatric healthcare providers at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, WV. The most recent training took place January 26-27, 2013 in New Orleans, LA.

Program Description:

Earth Gauge® (www.earthgauge.net) puts accessible, relevant environmental information into the hands of one of the most trusted media personalities, the weather forecaster. With a decade of experience, Earth Gauge has built a network of more than 250 meteorologists, radio broadcasters and journalists who use our environmental facts and tips in 120 media markets around the United States, reaching nearly 250 million viewers. In order to reach Hispanic populations, who are eager for environmental information and do not traditionally have access to it, the program is launching a pilot with Telemundo to provide Spanish-language information for TV broadcasts and radio programs in the Mid-Atlantic.

Program Long-Term Success:

The inclusion of local environmental and climate information is an integrated part of the on-air and online weathercast—it is the norm to include this information, rather than the exception.  Basic knowledge of environmental and climate science is a requirement for anyone wishing to enter the field of broadcast meteorology and is seamlessly integrated into undergraduate atmospheric programs and continuing professional development opportunities for broadcast meteorologists.

Program Short-Term Success:

NEEF’s Earth Gauge program supports broadcast meteorologists in their expanded roles as “station scientists”—because broadcast meteorologists are often the only professionals in the newsroom with a science background, they are well-positioned to serve as the station’s science expert, covering a range of science topics on-air, online and in community outreach activities.  In partnership with the American Meteorological Society (AMS), NEEF provides broadcast meteorologists with the resources they need to cover environment and climate stories. We provide media professionals with a free, weekly e-newsletter that ties a range of environmental topics to the local 3-day forecast; video clips and visual resources for use on-air and online; and a set of online climate and environmentally-themed continuing education courses developed in partnership with the COMET® Program that are tied to AMS certification.  Earth Gauge also reaches broadcast meteorologists at Spanish-language television stations with translated materials for use on-air and online.

Program Success Monitored by:

We track the success of Earth Gauge through twice-yearly surveys with broadcast meteorologists.  These surveys allow us to gauge satisfaction with the services we provide, obtain feedback about specific projects and identify new opportunities to support broadcast meteorologists by providing environmental information and training.  We collect examples of how broadcast meteorologists are using Earth Gauge information (http://www.earthgauge.net/on-air(http://www.earthgauge.net/on-air) ) and conduct in-depth interviews with meteorologists about why they think it is important to be their station’s scientist and the value they see in Earth Gauge materials (http://www.earthgauge.net/category/meteorologist-profiles(http://www.earthgauge.net/category/meteorologist-profiles) ).

Program Success Examples:

A few highlights from an Earth Gauge survey conducted in July 2010:  94 percent of respondents are satisfied or extremely satisfied with Earth Gauge information; 78.8 percent of respondents are satisfied or extremely satisfied with Climate Facts; 76.6 percent of respondents use Earth Gauge information on television at least once per month; 43.4 percent use on station website at least once per month; 56 percent use on station blog at least once per month; 55.5 percent use in community outreach at least once per month. We were also pleased to receive the following praise from meteorologists: ·         “There are some days in weather where you’re so busy you can’t stoyou’ve spent 12 hours there, you’ve covered multiple severe weather outbreaks. There are other days where you’re going to work and as you’re driving to work you’re going what am I going to do to make today interesting? And then this email comes in from Earth Gauge and you go, I hadn’t thought about that… Earth Gauge is a constant reminder for me to 'Don't be lazy. You’re the station scientist. By the way, there’s a good idea, go think about it.'" —Robin Reed, Chief Meteorologist, WDBJ-TV, Roanoke, Virginia ·         “At my TV station, the weather department is the only one that has any science background ... In the grand scheme of things, not only are we interested in science information, but now it becomes critically important that we get science information. And that’s where we’ve been using Earth Gauge – to take timely topics and put them on our website so they’re available to the public. And the advantage of the Internet is that it’s always there. You don’t have to schedule a time to watch; it’s there when you want it. And for the young people, many of them do not watch newscasts. They do not read newspapers. It’s the Internet where they’re going to get most of their information.” —Jim Gandy, Chief Meteorologist, WLTX-TV, Columbia, South Carolina

Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:

Our Public Lands Every Day Program (www.publiclandseveryday.org) works with park rangers and other land managers to engage Americans in active service on public lands, reinforcing the importance of the land, outdoor activity and service. We provide support for local community-based Friends Groups affiliated with public lands to increase their capacity to recruit volunteers throughout year to ensure that every day is public lands day. Our signature annual event, National Public Lands Day (www.publiclandsday.org), is the largest volunteer event for public lands and enlists 170,000 volunteers who contribute services worth $17 million at more than 2,000 sites across the country.

Program Long-Term Success:

Public land managers, “Friends of” public lands groups and local communities are actively and effectively engaged in caring for ALL public lands throughout the United States. Americans value their local public lands and enjoy participating in year-round recreational, educational and volunteer activities at the site.

Program Short-Term Success:

NEEF increases the capacity of public lands stewards to engage local communities to help care for our public lands, through the annual National Public Lands Day event and through grantmaking. We are giving thousands of public lands site managers the tools and resources to host volunteer events, which engage community members to get connected with and care for their public lands. The capacity building grants program launched in 2010 to foster the growth of Friends Groups and public lands managers. Ten awards were granted in the inaugural year from a pool of 150 applicants; 20 in 2011 from nearly 400 submitted proposals; and 50 in 2012 from about 600 applicants. There is clearly significant demand for our support and services.

Program Success Monitored by:

Numbers of volunteers, sites, projects, trash collected, trails repaired, vegetation planted, invasive species removed, etc. on National Public Lands Day each year, and evaluations completed by site managers. Number of capacity building grants given to Friends Groups and progress recorded in grant reports to NEEF. We are now working to develop an evaluation tool for the grants program.

Program Success Examples:

National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation’s largest volunteer event focused on improving public lands. Each year, thousands of Americans come together on the last Saturday in September to help improve parks, recreation areas, trails and historic sites throughout the country. On September 29, 2012, about 175,000 volunteers attended events at over 2,200 public lands sites, delivering an estimated $18 million dollars in improvements to public lands around the country. Volunteers removed 500 tons of trash; collected 23,000 lbs of invasive plant species; built and repaired 1,500 miles of trails and planted 100,000 trees, shrubs and other native plants, among other projects.   ·         “At one point one of the boys looked up at the clear blue sky and then looked around at the rugged beauty of Lamoille Canyon and said, ‘Wow, this may be community service, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it.’”  – Steven Craddock, Lamoille Canyon, Nevada ·         “This event provided opportunities for community members and staff to work towards a common goal. As people worked side by side, friendships were forged, and common interests and excitement about the site were shared. Plus the work accomplished was tremendous.”  – Carrie Karl, West Eugene Wetlands, Oregon ·         “My reward was a hug from a retired game warden who looks after the River Springs area once a week. He was thankful for the efforts of all the folks sharing their time in caring for land.”  – Jeff Starosta, River Springs, California
