Boards, Working with
Nonprofit organizations are governed by boards of directors, comprised mainly of members who serve as volunteers. It is that characteristic that is the interest of this subject in the library: applying volunteer management principles to how boards of directors recruit their members, work with the executive of the organization, form committees, and work among themselves. Other organizations specialize in "boardsmanship" and deal with broader topics relating to successful boards (strategic planning, budgeting, policies, etc.); we have provided links to those sites here under the the Web Sites and Blogs tab.
