Board Fundamentals: Understanding Roles in Nonprofit Governance

What is governance? What is the role of the board? What is expected of board members? And how does an effective board operate? Board Fundamentals, a BoardSource eBook, answers these questions and more.

Within its pages, you will find a description of the nonprofit sector, a discussion of the concept of governance (something that seems murky to many people new to governance), an in-depth look at the key governance roles and responsibilities of the board and the individuals involved in organizational governance, and suggestions on how the board can most effectively carry out its responsibilities.
