Building Better Boards for Community Organizations: Third Year Final Report, March 1, 1981-June 30, 1984.
Caparosa, Carol A.
This final report describes the purpose, background, goals, and accomplishments of the Building Better Boards for Community Organizations (BBB) project, a 3-year effort to strengthen the skills of citizen boards of nonprofit organizations through the establishment of board development/leadership programs at community colleges. First, a discussion of the project's purpose examines the organizational and community role of individuals serving on boards and explains how the BBB project emerged in response to the need for trained board leadership. Next, a section on project background provides information on the original Kellogg Community College training project; a subsequent award to the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges to develop the project on a national basis; the selection of the BBB's seven regional demonstration sites; and the establishment of a national advisory committee. The report then outlines the project's goals and accomplishments with respect to the development and implementation of community-based training programs; the establishment of a network of over 100 community colleges to offer programs for board members; and the assessment of the impact of training. Next, answers are provided for the most frequently asked questions about the BBB. Program evaluation findings and lists of participating colleges, the project advisory committee members, and project staff conclude the report. (LAL)
