The Question

“I’ve been hearing a lot about competency-based boards, particularly from boards funded by government bodies that are asking them to develop competency profiles for board members and to use when recruiting new members. If a board is faced with this requirement from a funding body, how should it get started?”

The Question

“Finding new board members is challenging. Especially if they are elected or appointed, we’re not sure what our role should be. How can the board plan for succession?”

Vol. 001 | October 2020

The Question

“We know we’re a working board and we see ourselves moving toward being a governing board.  What steps could we take to get started?”
