[Tom] reinforces the need and identifies the importance for the board and staff to work together to achieve the NPO's mission or core business goals. I found that the 10 operating features of the Complementary Model for directors and staff roles and responsibilities in organizations governance are ones I can definitely - and effectively - incorporate into my organization's process. This definitely should be a must read for all boards and staff (and not just the CEO). --Jack Wong, B.Comm., CMA, FCMA CEO, Real Estate Foundation of BC
From the CEO perspective, the Complementary Model is effective for a not-for-profit organization. The roles of the board and CEO are clear, the issue of codes of conduct for both parties is very comprehensive and facilitates a very interdependent relationship. --Bernadette Spence, BSW, MSW CEO, Vancouver Aboriginal Child and Family Services Society
Governance is a system by which an organization is directed and controlled. To that end, as a member of a governance structure, you will have three key duties - a duty of care, a duty of loyalty, a duty of obedience. Tom Abbott, in his new book The Complementary Model of Board Governance, provides the reader with clear, concise and cooperative ways to achieve those duties and govern their not-for-profit organizations properly. It's that simple. Whether you are part of a charity, a trade association, a professional association, a college, or a common interest group, this book will guide your organization in operating more effectively and more efficiently. --Rick Lightheart, CAE, FCIS, CMA, FCMA VP, Operations, Certified Management Accountants Society of BC
