Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s National Headquarters based in Atlanta, Georgia will honor the Boy & Girls Club of Richland County for achieving the Silver Level of Award Level of the League of EAGLES Award Program. This award is a key element of the national organization’s Great Futures 2025 Strategic Plan. The award recognizes local affiliate organizations for achieving 85% or more of the Board Governance Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), which define the strength of the organizations, board of directors. Recipients of the League of Eagles Awards achieve a set of standards which provide an outcome-based assessment of the board’s responsibilities and impact on the organization. This awards program measures six key elements of a “strong board of directors” which include 85% or more individual board members achieving the following standards:

Engagement: Engaged and attend board meetings.

Ask: Ask others face-to-face for funding.

Give: Give back by making a personal financial gift.

Lead: Lead the organization to achieving strategic initiatives.

Evaluate: Evaluate their individual board performance based on a personal plan.

Serve: Serving actively on committees or task forces of the organization.

Reaching this milestone is a significant accomplishment of which only 15% or less of the 1100-member organizations of the 160-year-old national youth development organization met in 2017. The award is a testimony to the dedication and commitment of the organization’s board and executive leadership in serving the youth of your community at the highest level. Tami Christensen, member of the organization’s board of directors will receive the award during the Southwest Leadership to be held in Austin, Texas, on September 20.
