Good Governance Does Matter...
The Right People
Who are these people? Nonprofits rely on individual board leaders that care deeply about the mission of the organization. They are women and men who have the time and resources to do a good job. They are individuals with the skills and expertise that the organization needs to meet its challenges. Finally, they are those who understand their governance role or are willing to learn.
The Right Structure
Great nonprofit Boards welcome the right people into a structure that uses their time and expertise effectively. The real work gets done within committees dedicated to specific issues, and engages Board members with relevant expertise and experience. The division of labor streamlines the organization’s Board processes, involves the Board efficiently and lets Board members see their unique contributions!
