?

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

Program Description:

Texas Public Radio (TPR) is a San Antonio based public broadcaster. TPR broadcasts NPR news and information on KSTX-FM and classical music on KPAC-FM, as well as, a mix of news and music on KTXI-FM in the Texas Hill Country. TPR is not a statewide network, however, the name for the organization was chosen anticipating the eventual development of radio services elsewhere in the state. KPAC specializes in broadcasting classical music and fine arts information to the San Antonio area. For the most part, its programming is created from its own library of classical music recordings - a collection that provides varied and comprehensive opportunities to sample the entire range of the music. The schedule also includes live broadcasts of The Metropolitan Opera and recorded concerts by some of the world's finest symphony orchestras. Specialty programs include music for children, early music and new compact disc releases. KPAC is listened to regularly by as many as 65,000 people. KSTX broadcasts public radio's premier news, information and entertainment programs to the San Antonio area. Its weekday schedule is composed mainly of programs produced by National Public Radio such as NPR's flagship newsmagazines "All Things Considered" and "Morning Edition." Opportunity for listener comments and questions on a wide range of subjects is offered during NPR's "Talk of the Nation" and "The Diane Rehm Show." Foreign perspective on news-making events is offered in "The World" and overnight broadcast of the BBC World Service. Entertainment programs on weekends include such public radio favorites as "A Prairie Home Companion," "Car Talk" and San Antonio's own Jim Cullum Jazz Band in the nationally distributed series "Riverwalk, Live From the Landing." As many as 85,000 people listen regularly to KSTX. Many other people listen to KSTX on the internet at our website, tpr.org. TPR's third station, KTXI, serves listeners in the Western Texas Hill Country around Kerrville and Fredericksburg with simultaneous broadcasts of programs in the KPAC and KSTX schedules. In time, it will originate at least some of its own schedule - to allow opportunity for programming that is specifically oriented to Hill Country listeners. As many as about 10,000 people listen regularly to KTXI. TPR also provides extensive additional information about its programming on the internet at tpr.org. Included are many links to the sources of programs heard on the stations and other relevant sites. KSTX programming is streamed 24 hours daily for listeners outside the San Antonio area. (KPAC programming is not streamed at this time, because of issues having to do with payments to the recording industry and record-keeping requirements for streaming music on the internet.)

Program Long-Term Success:
