Shouldn’t your board members be held to that same standard? I think so.
- Leader in the community
- Financial support
- Intellectual support
- Full participation in board meetings, monthly luncheons and annual meeting
- CEO only, if possible
- Understands the role of a board to set policy, not implement policy - that’s your job
The last bullet is key. Our boards should be made up of business leaders that are setting policy for the organization to thrive today and in the years ahead.
