Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

November 2013)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program Description:

More than 110,000 listeners each week tune to 90.9 fm for classical music. In addition, WGUC broadcasts many local musical events including the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra concerts, The Cincinnati May Festival, and Cincinnati Opera seasons. WGUC also introduces a new generation to classical music through its broadcast and educational program "Classics for Kids." Daily, the station serves as a friendly reference guide to Greater Cincinnati's vibrant and extensive cultural life. More than 150,000 people tune to 91.7 WVXU to listen to its line-up of news and information programs from local, national and international sources including National Public Radio, American Public Media, Public Radio International and the BBC. The schedule also includes jazz, swing and blues programs.

Program Long-Term Success:

With the strength of strong program line-ups and strategies for revenue enhancement, Cincinnati Public Radio has experienced significant increases in membership, especially from sustaining members, and underwriting revenue for seven straight years. The stations’ online audience continues to increase, and their broadcast audience numbers remain strong in the face of an increasingly crowded media environment. Together, WGUC and WVXU/WMUB serve a half million listeners each month.

Program Short-Term Success:

In 2013, NPR decided to cease production of the program Talk of the Nation providing Cincinnati Public Radio with the rare opportunity to launch new weekday programming during the midday. Cincinnati Edition was launched July 1, 2013 to engage listeners and focus on the issues and conversations important to the citizens of Greater Cincinnati. Cincinnati Edition now airs Monday through Thursday at 2:00 pm covering topics from regional government, to business, education, health and the arts.
