Building an Effective Board of Directors - Lysakowski, Linda
The role of the board in governing a non-profit organization cannot be overestimated. The board makes the difference between a good non-profit and a great one, and can even make or break and organization. Boards are like parents: they need to support, encourage, and inspire greatness in their “child” if the organizations is to survive and thrive. What happens when the board does not understand its role or embrace it? The non-profit becomes an “orphan,” unable to secure sufficient funding, attract committed staff and enthusiastic volunteers or reach its potential as a service provider.
