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.

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.
