ACCW What are the best practices for board governance

Best practice 1: Board members don’t direct the organization – the Board does. This principle goes to the heart of effective Boards. When governance is effective, Board members see their role as serving on the Board and participating actively in decisions of the Board.

Best practice 2: The ACCW Board focuses on long-term results.

A high-performing Board identifies the long-term results it wants the organization to achieve. These desired outcomes are documented and approved by the Board – and form the basis of the organization’s  Strategic Plan.

We can design and facilitate planning meetings that enable the Board members and executive team to engage around questions such as:

  • What is our vision for the next three years? What would success look like?
  • How would we translate that into specific goals and objectives?
  • What are the major strategies or ways we envision achieving those goals?

When ACCW Board takes the time to define the organization’s direction, it builds ownership – and helps align the entire organization around a set of clear priorities. Plus, it helps in attracting highly qualified Board members to serve on the Board.

Best practice 3: The Board makes sure the organization has the resources it needs.
