When engaged, a board of directors can guide your organization to success by offering strategic vision, sound oversight and broader connections. According to Berine Tenenbaum, a Forbes contributor and managing partner of Lodestone Global, “a great board of directors can help expand your vision in a way that helps you achieve your long-term goals and strategic objectives.”

But, in order for nonprofits to see these benefits, board members have to do more than show up for meetings. They need to care about and be committed to pushing your nonprofit forward. At the same time, the organization needs to support the board and promote engagement.

Every year, the BoardMax team conducts a survey to measure the effectiveness of board engagement and board management practices. In our 2015 Board Engagement Report, we discovered that board members’ satisfaction with their contributions to the organization is often closely tied to their engagement, meeting attendance and individual performance. Further, the survey found that year over year, board member satisfaction (satisfied or very satisfied) decreased from 83% to 75%.

So, how has the state of board engagement shifted over the past year? And what are organizations doing to maximize board efficacy?
