NAFCU and DDJ Myers Announce Launch of Their Board Alignment Assessment

Sponsored by Businesswire

NAFCU and DDJ Myers announced the launch of a new Board Alignment Assessment (BAA) that equips CEOs and boards with the pivotal performance and alignment information necessary to elevate their contribution and effectiveness. Now more than ever, credit unions need boards that can jointly adapt to the new normal, and help reshape their strategic focus.

Based on 30 years of leadership research, the online assessment tool measures the alignment of board members by quantifying critical success factors among 8 best-practice governance categories. In 30 minutes, credit unions can administer a confidential online survey, accessible via desktop computer or mobile device and review results through an interactive online dashboard. An expert from DDJ Myers will provide consultation with the board on the findings.

Randy Salser, president of NAFCU Services said “We have worked with Board Members for many years looking for better ways to gauge and improve their alignment. This online tool will help board members ask these challenging questions, and then determine exactly where they need to direct the most effort and attention. This partnership and the assessment tools put incredible insights directly in the hands of the credit unions and their boards.”

“We’ve learned that after working with countless boards, each board is different and so are their concerns and priorities,” Senior Vice President of DDJ Myers, Peter Myers said. “Yes, many boards are curious how they perform compared to their peers, yet they also are interested in specifically identifying the board practices that will enhance their alignment and contribution at their unique credit union. By collaborating with NAFCU, we’re now able to bring credit unions across the nation an accessible and easy-to-manage tool that provides them relevant feedback.”
