If your board can no longer provide leadership or fresh ideas, or if money is becoming an issue, it may be time to spice things up. If your board has been there forever, but changes have taken place at the membership level, it may be time to make some changes up the top to reflect the changing membership base and the organisation's changing priorities.
Once you've identified the tasks the board has to handle, you then have to ask whether your current board as the capacity to do them all. What gaps leap out to you? If you can reach agreement on the overview, it may make it less painful to come to cases.
Fill out the following Board Composition Checklist to get started on the process.
