To meet and exceed the needs of our clients, NESC has formed a “Board Practices Committee” comprised of several senior consultants to tackle some of the biggest issues in board practices. The committee has assembled and studied various leading sources on the topic to provide a new resource for fellow consultants to utilize in their consulting engagements.

This resource addresses a range of issues within board development such as building the foundation of good governance, how to ensure adequate financial resources and oversight, planning effective/efficient board meetings and many more.

“Our goal was to gather and review available material and to produce a resource available to effectively implement board development projects,” says Jeanne Linnes, Senior Consultant for NESC’s Arts Sector who leads the committee.  “The syllabus can be used to educate NESC volunteers and can also be tailored to meet the specific needs of individual consulting engagements.”


The committee is comprised of a diverse group of consultants who bring their vast professional and consulting experience which includes James Berry, Paul Burak, Janet Filling, Marcia Glatman and Alan McDougall.
