Evaluating Your Organization

A good way to make sure that your organization is on the right track is to evaluate your organization. Start with these basic questions:

  • Is our group fulfilling its goal or mission?
  • Are our members taking an active role in the organization?
  • Are our meetings run effectively?
  • Is there a positive climate among group members?

More specific questions which relate to your organization should be developed.

Organization evaluation should take place at least once a year  — more frequently if problems occur. Good times to evaluate are before officer transition and during goal-setting sessions.
