Knowing where to begin for board development can be difficult. CNM’s Board Assessment will help you understand the current state of your board of directors because knowing where you are is essential in the journey toward where you want to go.

“Thanks to CNM’s ability to listen to what we felt we needed, as well as engaging our Board members, CNM put together a great presentation that both brand new Board members as well as those who have been committed to National Council of Jewish Women for more years than we can imagine could gain insight and knowledge. Thank you for making our investment in our Board so incredibly worthwhile.”
