9781933719016: Field Guide to Developing and Operating Your Nonprofit Board of Directors

UNIQUE! There are already publications about nonprofit Boards -- this book is unique! Some publications provide basic overviews of Boards. Some publications provide practical suggestions about one aspect of Board operations, for example, how to staff a Board or evaluate a Board. Some publications provide reflective and inspirational discussions about the type of governance needed for the 21st Century. If you "boiled down" these useful publications to their most practical information and then added many other practical suggestions and materials, you would end up with this book. TOPICS include how to 1) really understand nonprofit organizations, 2) address the most important considerations in starting a nonprofit, 3) develop key materials and documents needed by any Board, 4) train about the roles and responsibilities of the Board and Chief Executive Officer (Executive Director), 5) orient Board members about the nonprofit, 6) identify the nonprofit's most relevant long-range goals, 7) customize Board organization and operations to those long-range goals, 8) recruit and retain the most useful Board members, 9) activate the most appropriate Board Committees, 10) make -- and ensure implementation of -- strategic decisions, 11) follow guidelines for good governance, 12) ensure successful Board meetings, 13) coordinate communications between the Board and Chief Executive Officer, 14) evaluate the Board, and 15) hire and/or replace the Chief Executive Officer. THIS guide is very useful to start a Board, develop a Board or fix a currently struggling Board. Guidelines are written in an easy-to-implement style, resulting in a highly practical resource that can be referenced at any time during the life of a nonprofit Board and organization.
