Board Members

Supporting your growth as a board member.

Serving as a board member is one of the most challenging and rewarding volunteer experiences and an effective board can strengthen a not-for-profit organization in many different ways. Vantage Point offers you important information and opportunities to develop your particular skills, talents and resources.

A highly effective and engaged board has clarity around roles, responsibilities and aligns their work and performance with organizational values and vision. This workshop focuses on board members’ key responsibilities and moves boards out of operations and into the “big picture.

Vancouver's Not-For-Profit Board Chair Panel presented by Harbour West Consulting

Join local not-for-profit board chairs and Vantage Point for an opportunity to learn from and connect with your peers. Focused specifically on the unique and critical role of the board chair, our panel of thought leaders will share their perspectives on the board chair role and more.

This worksheet creates a simple “so that” chain, clearly linking your strategy, with outcomes that build towards your organization's ultimate goal. Use this worksheet to begin exploring the long-term, community level impact of your work.  

This sample stakeholder survey was developed for a fictional community organization that serves families with young children.

Surveys like this can be used to gather information about stakeholders and clients in order to develop and evaluate programs, or as part your strategic planning activities.
