Building dedicated and effective Boards...

At Chora, we believe that effective Boards are made, not born. Our customized Board Development Programs are designed to foster high-performance and strategic Boards that look beyond mere organizational survival to organizational success.

The success of any organization hinges on a well-functioning Governing Board. Well-functioning Boards understand their role is to represent the ultimate owners of the institution. They also understand they should not be merely cheerleaders for the organization they governs, but rather become an effective link between core stakeholders and the staff. Too often, however, a Board sees its mandate only as the overseer of the staff—it slips into micro-management and thus ceases to perform as it should. A well-run organization with a positive community profile and with products and services aligned to its mission is sure evidence of a well-functioning Board. Such a Board offers a voice to the prime constituencies, ensures funding stability and accountability, cultivates its external relations, and evaluates on a continuous basis the strategic landscape and performance of the organization against the benchmarks established in a strategic plan. This should be the goal of all non-profits.
