Center for Nonprofit Policy and Practice
The Center for Nonprofit Policy & Practice (CNP&P) was formally engaged by board leaders of the Dunham Tavern Museum in 2014 to assist the organization with forming and performing the work to strengthen board governance. Gradually, a project work plan was created to conduct “small p” planning (not traditional strategic planning) to advance the interests of the organization.
- The mutually agreed upon work products facilitated by the CNP&P include the following elements:
- Board development, training, and priorities planning of strategic issues;
- Assist board members develop a board governance committee;
- Create a mutually agreeable work plan for the committee;
- Provide staffing and support for the board governance committee, involving such matters as:
- Prepare meeting agendas
- Note-taking at meetings with written minutes
- Coordinating communications of board members
- Research as required
- Review and revise official Dunham Tavern bylaws;
- Other tasks as mutually agreed upon.
