Do you have new (or existing) board members that require orientation? Interested in conducting an assessment of your board's efficacy? Feel as if your board could be communicating or collaborating better? 

If you think your board could be performing more efficiently and effectively, you may want to explore some of the tools BoardSource has to offer for boards who need a little (or a lot of) help. These include a board orientation PowerPoint template that you can adapt for your own use, as well as documents like "Eight ways to increase your board's ability to work as a team" and "Six signs it's time to assess your board's performance." 

You can download these resources, as well as other tools that they offer, at (Some resources are only available to BoardSource members.)
