From the Inside Flap:

Nonprofit Boards and Leadership is a provocative book that provides a rare behind-the-scenes view of the inner workings of real-life boardrooms. Based on actual examples from such prestigious organizations as The United Way of Massachusetts Bay, The California Medical Center, The University of Bridgeport, and the AIDS Los Angeles Project—this unique book offers detailed case studies that demonstrate the crucial strategic issues facing nonprofit governing boards. These and other compelling case studies have been contributed by leading scholars in the nonprofit field. The scenarios are based on real events and issues that actual board members have grappled with and solved. This book provides board members a new method of dealing with thorny situations and offers a nonthreatening way to reflect on their board's problems. In this practical book, each chapter is a story that outlines the context of the case and is followed by questions for discussion. The reader is encouraged to study the case scenarios and develop their own solutions to these dilemmas. Some of the real-life cases in this book include:

  • An elite hands-off board of a social service agency has suddenly learned that millions of dollars of debt threaten the organization's survival.
  • The community-oriented mission statement identified by the board of directors is in opposition with the revenue-generating policies of the hospital's corporate parent.
  • A board member grapples with accommodating her personal philosophy of philanthropy with her foundation's priorities in evaluating grant proposals.
  • The executive director and the board chair disagree about the board's ethics, role, and decision-making.
Nonprofit Boards and Leadership provides a hands-on feel for the complex issues that challenge today's board members.
