Board Enhancement and Ongoing Counsel

Ask yourself this simple question: Do you look forward to Board and Board Committee meetings? If the answer is no, your organization is missing a significant opportunity and our Board Enhancement programs can produce high functioning Boards that are a significant leadership and funding source for you.

Board Assessment

Alexander Haas will review your bylaws, policies, committee and board meeting minutes and conduct personal interviews with Board Members to evaluate the composition, working effectiveness of the Board and its committees as well as the Board member’s experience and satisfaction with their Board service.  From this assessment we will provide you with a detailed set of recommendations that will set your Board on course to implement best practices in governance and policy, have more effective committee and full board meetings and have a more satisfying overall governance experience.

Board Development Counsel

At the completion of the Board Assessment, Alexander Haas can continue to provide direct counsel as you work to implement the recommendations of the report.  Obviously, change does not always come easily, and having a trusted partner to walk with you and your Board members as you navigate this process can be extremely effective.

Board Training/Retreats

Need you Board to better understand their role in governance, have a more clear distinction of staff responsibilities versus board responsibilities, want them to be more comfortable and effective in fund and friend raising?  Perhaps an Alexander Hass led Board Retreat is part of the Answer.  We will work with you to develop a half or full-day program to help educate your Board in areas where they need to be more effective.  These engaging sessions can be stand alone or can proceed a Board Assessment, as often the retreat itself will uncover the need for a deeper look at board function, or they can be does as a first step in implementation after a Board Assessment has been completed.
