Open call for new members to join the Feedback Labs board!

 

We’re excited to announce a 2022 call for candidates to be considered for Feedback Labs’ Board of Directors. Feedback Labs already has a world-class board and an ongoing internal board recruitment process, but it aspires to live its values by ensuring its board is open to the most qualified people in the world, regardless of whether they are already in our networks. To this end, Feedback Labs is looking to recruit two (2) new board members!

 

About Feedback Labs and our Board of Directors

Feedback Labs is a global network of more than 600 organizations that believe that people and communities should have a say in the programs that affect their lives. We make the case that listening and acting on feedback from constituents is the right thing to do morally and ethically, the smart thing to do to achieve better outcomes, and the feasible thing to do at scale. Feedback Labs’ objective is to create a ‘tipping point’ so that good feedback practice becomes the expected thing to do as well. We do this work with the belief that making people’s voices central to the decision-making process will revolutionize social impact and that the new norms that cement good feedback practice will help contribute to a more equitable world.

Currently, our Board of Directors is made up of five individuals from the feedback field with experience in domestic and international nonprofits, philanthropy, and official aid agencies. For many past and current board members, serving on the board is a way to invest in the field of feedback and advocate for the critical role of constituents’ voices in social impact work. It’s also an invaluable opportunity for personal and professional development! Join a great team of talented nonprofit and philanthropy professionals who, together with Feedback Labs’ CEO and staff, shape the strategic direction of the organization and oversee the organization’s financial sustainability and growth. 

 

Who should apply?

Feedback Labs is looking for board members from diverse backgrounds, and with varied professional and lived experiences, skill sets, perspectives, and voices to help Feedback Labs execute on its strategic vision and contribute their expertise to grow Feedback Labs’ capacity and impact. 

 

We are looking for board members who:

  • Are passionate about listening and incorporating feedback into programs and policies to achieve impact and foster equity;
  • Have experience using feedback to inform decision-making within an organization;
  • Have demonstrated a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion;
  • Have experience engaging in or strengthening professional networks or communities, like the feedback field;
  • Bring enthusiasm, experience, questions, and big ideas to strategic planning and organizational goal setting;
  • Are able and willing to represent Feedback Labs to broader audiences, and who may be in a position to help us build the reach and influence of our network;
  • Have comfort and experience with financial management and organizational budgeting.

 

What’s expected of Feedback Labs board members?

Feedback Labs’ board members are the fiduciary guardians of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and take on an active role in one or more of our board committees: (1) Finance, Audit, and Compensation Committee, (2) Governance Committee.

Board members are expected to dedicate about 2-8 hours per quarter to working on Feedback Labs business. This includes attending quarterly Board of Directors meetings (option to attend either virtually or in person), occasional committee meetings, follow-up tasks related to those committee functions, participating in our annual Feedback Summit, and responding to requests from Feedback Labs staff, such as a review of title and salary changes, CEO expenses, etc.  

Once elected by the board, Directors serve a one-year term. Directors may be elected to serve an indefinite number of terms. Board positions are not remunerated.

 

Expression of Interest & Selection

We’re excited that you’re interested in joining our Board of Directors! Please complete our application form, including uploading your resume. If you believe someone you know would be a qualified candidate, please encourage them to apply. Applications are due by 11pm ET on May 31, 2022

 

The Board of Directors will review all applications and identify candidates to be interviewed. Selection will be made by a vote on the individual appointment of each proposed candidate for Director. Candidates will be notified by June 30, 2022. The announcement of newly appointed Directors will be posted on our website and shared with the Feedback Labs community later this year.

 

If you have any additional questions, please contact Britt Lake, Feedback Labs’ CEO, at [email protected] or Bryan Simmons, Board Chair at [email protected]
