Overview

What are nonprofit boards supposed to do? This operator's manual for today's nonprofit board of directors details the responsibilities of the board; explains how to articulate the nonprofit's vision and mission; describes processes for evaluating the board chair and directors; explains how to evaluate the board's decision making; and outlines how to improve the dreaded board meeting.

Chapter exercises allow readers to assess how well their own boards are doing, while popular cartoons from The New Yorker satirize common board afflictions. An essential resource for every nonprofit executive director and board leader, Nonprofit Boards is also an excellent text for students of social work administration.
