Here is a book for all nonprofit boards. Those wanting to operate with maximum effectiveness; those needing to clarify exactly what their job is; and those wanting to ensure that all members - novice and veteran alike - are on the same page with respect to roles and responsibilities.
The Ultimate Board Member's Book takes only 60 minutes to read, yet it provides a solid command of just what board members must do to help their organization succeed.
It's all here in jargon-free language: how boards work, what the job entails, the time commitment, the role of staff, serving on committees and task forces, fundraising responsibilities, conflicts of interest, group decision-making, how to develop yourself, effective recruiting, de-enlisting board members, board self-evaluation, and more.
