Every board should strive to be data driven. This is not a new concept. 7 Measures of Success: What Remarkable Associations Do That Others Don’t was published ten years ago! In that book, the authors found that remarkable associations are constantly gathering quantitative, qualitative, formal and anecdotal information about their members and their industry that is then analyzed to evaluate association performance and make decisions in strategic and operational planning.
Although association board members are volunteers, having clearly defined “job” descriptions for them is critical to moving projects and initiatives forward and making the volunteer experience a meaningful one. A well-defined job description should define a board member’s role as a representative of the association and clearly identify his or her responsibilities. The job description should also establish the qualifications and set expectations for the position. A job description that accomplishes those four items can help create a path for greater volunteer satisfaction and increased board member productivity.
