Governance & Leadership Consulting

Sometimes the best way to overcome the challenges facing your board is to engage an experienced outsider to observe and facilitate change. BVU's board development and succession plan consulting services are designed to meet the unique needs of your nonprofit organization. Our team of consultants has years of experience providing practical and high quality consulting services to nonprofit leaders. These consulting offerings include:

Custom Board Training

BVU offers customized board training presentations to address the particular and timely concerns and issues facing a nonprofit. Specific topics include the role and responsibilities of serving on a board, best practices in nonprofit governance, fund development, strategic planning, leadership succession planning and the roles of advisory boards.

Board Consulting Services

BVU conducts board consultations for board and staff leaders of nonprofit organizations. The board assessment process engages the full board in a discussion around best practices in governance.

Leadership Succession Consulting Services

BVU staff provides leadership succession and transition planning consulting for nonprofit staff and boards, including the development of emergency succession plans, long-range staff succession plans and board succession plans. BVU charges a fee for this service.
