Nonprofit Governance – Governing

Nonprofit Governance – Governing

As a Board of Directors, this group is legally and morally responsible for the health and effectiveness of the Organization.

Nonprofit Governance Is:

The process by which the Board operating as a group ensures this. Many Board of Directors still operate at the management “Day to Day” operational level not realizing that, in fact, they have a far more significant and greater responsibility to stewarding the health of the organization.

As such, this resource provides a concrete roadmap on how to move an organization from management to governance and as a result strengthening the organization and ensuring its future stability in the process.

This resource provides you with some concrete suggestions on how to govern an organization through efficiently recruiting new Board members, assessing them, and setting them up for success.

I hope that through this resource you will have the tools that you need to begin to shift your organization from managing to governing. It all begins and ends with your Board of Directors, so use the resources laid out here to ensure that your organization is set-up to engage your members and ensure the long-term sustainability of your organization.
