?

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?

Programs

Program: Texas Veterans Outreach Program (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
October 2012)

Budget:
$425,000
Category:
Employment
Population Served:
Military/Veterans
Disabled, General or Disability Unspecified
Homeless

Program Description:

A state funded program that focuses employment and training assistance on those generally described as "hard-to-serve" including the disabled, those recently discharged that experience readjustment problems, homeless veterans, and veterans with other challenges to employment such as substance abuse history or formerly incarcerated veterans. Services provided include case mangement/counseling, referral, job placement and various support services, i.e. housing, medical or dental referrals, legal referrals, and other services essential to stabilizing the client so that they may be assisted with job placement assistance.

Program Long-Term Success:

This program was funded as pilot program in 2008 for a two year test. The program found a tremendous need for these specialized target services and resulted in meeting or exceeding all planned goals, i.e. enrollments, job placements, housing goals, etc. Due to the continuing growth of the Texas veterans population, which is now the second largest veteran population in the nation, and based on the program success, the Texas Veterans Outreach Program has now been refunded for an additional two years under regular funding status.

Program Short-Term Success:

The short-term effects of the program is the "stabilization phase" that begins with initial screening that identifies problems that the client needs resolved before they can move on to successful job placement. This immediate intervention to provide housing for homeless, medical evaluations for disabled, clinical counseling for recently discharged veterans with "reintegration barriers" are all examples of immediate short-term successes of the program.

Program Success Monitored by:

This program is monitored by the Texas Workforce Commission. The TWC requires quarterly reports results versus goals and narrative idenifying special challenges or other highlights. This program is also included in the annual review for contract compliance perfomed by an independent CPA firm in accordance with the Single Audit Act.

Program Success Examples:

The program success can be measured by such examples as

Program: Veterans Workforce Investment Program (GuideStar Exchange,

October 2012)

Budget:
$500,000
Category:
Employment
Population Served:
Military/Veterans
Disabled, General or Disability Unspecified
Adults

Program Description:

The Veterans Workforce Investment Program targets recently discharged veterans (less than 48 months since discharge) for training and job placement in energy renewal / energy conservation "green jobs". In addtion the program provides case management, support services, and extended follow-up after placement.

Program Long-Term Success:

The Veterans Workforce Investment Program is a first year program seeking job placements in the cutting edge energy renewal/ energy conservation fiields of employment. Long-term success is the expected outcome, but the program only has a few months of operation at this time.

Program Short-Term Success:

The program's short-term succes has been in identifying veterans with limited civilian job skills, and connecting them to training in these new energy conservation fields. In its first 180 days of opertion the program has met all recruitment goals and training objectives. Job placement is expected to follow after completion of training.

Program Success Monitored by:

This program is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor Veterans Employment and Training Service. DOL requires quarterly reports submitted in accordance with the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) that illustrate actual performance against planned goals. Annually DOL monitors the individual client folders for eligibility and program compliance. Additionally, all NVOP programs are audited annually by the Certified Public Accounting firm for contract compliance.
