Board Member Self-Evaluations

04/29/2020 11:00 am

The value of conducting a board self-evaluation is especially critical this year. Your board has had to learn new ways to meet and communicate, to develop policy, provide oversight and govern effectively. The self-evaluation will assist in providing an analysis of your strengths to enable the board to meet the challenges that lie ahead. We will discuss NJSBA’s online tool for the Annual Board Self-Evaluation (BSE), including what the BSE covers, why boards should complete the BSE, the benefits of completing the BSE, ways to use the results of the compiled document, and how to complete it online.
