Boards and Governance

description of boards & governance

The best meetings leave us focused and energized: the goal of the meeting is clear; our team is motivated; and the process is smooth.

“Collective impact” describes an intentional way of working together and sharing information for the purpose of solving a complex problem.

Entire books have been written about the art of cultivating, identifying, asking, and nurturing a strong nonprofit board.

Board members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound governance and financial management policies, and ensuring adequate resources.

Boards need up-to-date financial information so that they can make decisions with an understanding of the financial impact on the nonprofit.

The vast, indeed overwhelming majority, of board members of charitable nonprofits are unpaid volunteer members of their boards of directors.
