Effective Governance

Advancement Consulting knows that successful not-for-profits are governed by trustees who share with management a strong sense of commitment and responsibility for moving their organizations forward.

How well do your trustees:
Understand their roles and how their responsibilities differ from management?
Reveal the mix of expertise, talents, characteristics, financial resources and influence necessary to liaison effectively with your community?
Prepare for board meetings, attend regularly, participate constructively and follow through with assignments?
Appreciate the unique characteristics and challenges of your organization?
Advocate for your organization and participate enthusiastically in its fundraising?
Advancement Consulting can guide your dedicated leaders to achieve a clearer purpose and bolder vision. We can equip your trustees with proven strategies for effectively governing your organization to deliver its mission and reach its goals.
