This publication is part of The Governance Series, a six-book collection addressing all of the fundamental elements of service common to most boards.
Our all-time bestseller, Ten Basics, not only explores the board’s 10 core responsibilities, it also puts them into the context of the governance challenges facing nonprofits today.
We clarify and distinguish the board’s responsibilities from those of the chief executive and senior staff. In addition, it includes two appendixes, one covering the individual responsibilities of board members and the other providing a sample self-assessment for individual board members.
Recently updated to include a deeper discussion of the role that advocacy plays in the responsibilities of nonprofit boards.
The Governance Series addresses all of the fundamental elements of service common to most boards, including board member responsibilities, how to structure the board in the most efficient manner, and how to accomplish governance work in the spirit of the mission of the organization.
