Chorus America is pleased to announce the Online Chorus Self-Evaluation Tool. The online evaluation encourages board and staff members to work together to assess their organizations’ effectiveness in various areas of nonprofit management and to take steps to strengthen those areas that fall short of best practices.
Chorus America understands that no two choruses are alike. Operational data gathered through our annual Chorus Operations Survey reflects this reality: a chorus with 200 singers may have only a few part-time staff and a chorus with 12 singers may have multiple full-time staff.
"Having Chorus America talk to our Board and address the survey results helped our Board start much needed discussions about where we are, where we want to be and how we should get there. Thank you for taking the time to help us through this needed process!"

How you use the tool is up to you. You may choose to have your entire board and staff complete the full self-assessment. Or you may choose a subset like your senior leadership team (board president, chief artistic and administrative leaders, chorus president) to complete the self-evaluation. Whatever process you use, we hope the results of this self-evaluation become the basis for an honest dialogue within your organization about strengths and weaknesses, areas for immediate improvement and future development, and legal compliance.
When you’ve identified the next steps you’d like to implement, Chorus America is standing by with templates, guidance, and other resources to help you, including a Chorus America staff or consultant to discuss your results. Our team is also available to lead a board/staff retreat centered around your results.
- FREE for Chorus Organizational Members (Evaluation and no consultation on results)
- $ 100.00 Evaluation and phone consultation on results
- $ 500.00 Evaluation plus board/staff discussion led by Chorus America staff or consultant*
