About this title

Synopsis:

“Think for a moment of the best conversations you’ve had with friends and colleagues. You were honest with one another—not shy about speaking up but relaxed, even if the topic being discussed was serious in nature. That’s the type of conversation The Nonprofit Board Answer Book aims to have with you in the pages that follow. It follows a question-and-answer format, enabling you to quickly find an answer to a burning question you have right now. At the same time, it’s easy to pick up and read straight through, either cover to cover or one section at a time.

At the end of each question-and-answer pairing you’ll find suggested action steps. These offer ways to put the information to a practical use on your own board and within your own nonprofit organization. Implementing some of these steps may lead to more questions as you become even more committed to fulfilling your responsibilities as a board member.

Remember: behind every good answer lies a good question. So keep asking those questions.”--from the Introduction

 

 

From the Back Cover:

The Answers Your Board Has Been Searching For

"Think for a moment of the best conversations you've had with friends and colleagues.

It follows a question-and-answer format, enabling you to quickly find an answer to a burning question you have right now. At the same time, it's easy to pick up and read straight through, either cover to cover or one section at a time.

Praise for the Previous Edition

"The authors strike just the right balance between theory and practice. The Answer Book is thorough, thoughtful, and comprehensive—while at the same time organized with busy readers in mind. The addition of 25 new chapters turns what was already an invaluable resource into a one-stop toolkit for addressing common board problems. If I could recommend only one book about governance, it would be this one."
—Richard L. Moyers, director, Nonprofit Sector Fund, Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation

"This new edition is a must for those boards who take seriously the issue of appropriate and excellent board governance. It addresses particularly well the what, when, how, and who issues of boardsmanship and helps set the course for governing rather than administering or micromanaging."
—Ken Smitherman, president, Association of Christian Schools International

"Without exception, this should be required reading for both new and experienced board members and senior management. With 25 new chapters, I can't imagine there is a question (or an answer) that isn't addressed in this thorough, but practical, resource. Board meetings will be 25 percent shorter, thanks to this book."
—John Pearson, president, John Pearson Associates, Inc.
