Board Development Committee
The Board Development (formerly Nominating Committee) oversees the identification, recruitment, orientation, training, and retention of board members. This committee looks for opportunities to strengthen and evolve the board’s effectiveness, capacity, composition, and ability to lead the Foundation into the future. The duties of the Board Development Committee include an assessment of board performance, both for the board as a whole and of individual board members. The committee is responsible for identifying board position descriptions, by evaluating the needs of the board and developing profiles of the skillsets that are needed to fill vacancies on the board. It works with the rest of the board members to help find the right people to fill these board positions and works hard to promote diversity on the board. The committee also implements, along with executive committee members and staff of the organization, board orientation sessions. The Board Development Committee is responsible for ongoing education of the board.
