Board Fundamentals: Executive Director Development

You are here


Develop an evaluation process that works for your organization.

Learn why, when and how to evaluate the executive director, and move towards developing a process and an assessment tool that works for your organization. With no peers and no direct supervisor, it can be difficult for an executive director to obtain honest feedback to improve their performance.

Board members attending this workshop will come away with processes and templates to effectively and fairly assess the work of their executive director.
