QUICK QUIZ: A SELF-EVALUATION OF YOU AND YOUR BOARD
1) As the President/CEO, are you spending a meaningful proportion of time (e.g., one day a week, every week) involved in appropriate relationship cultivation and solicitation activities -- beyond responsibilities of managing your station's fundraising department?
2) Does your Board's Nominating Committee consider the ability of nominees to the Board to provide funding, solicit funding from others, and/or contribute meaningful expertise to your station?
3) Are 100% of your Board Members current financial supporters of your station at a level which is appropriate to their means and in line with their support of other nonprofit organizations?
