A board’s governance role is very different from the role of management. “Making this distinction requires a reorientation for most board member, because in their day jobs, they are managers or employees.”2. Boards often fail at two matters: a.) preparation of their members, and b.) regular evaluations of their own effectiveness and focus.In short, pointedly-written chapters, Stoesz covers:Helping Directors Understand Their Governance RoleA Plan to Fulfill the PurposeReporting Back to the MembersPlanning Effective MeetingsGreat Boards Have a Good Fight (occasionally)Working Your Way Through a CrisisGreat Boards CelebrateLeaving RightStoesz deftly interweaves background philosophy, vision, and razor-sharp specific ideas.

    An excellent primer on how to be an effective non profit board member. It gives details on how to critique and enhance both the individual and board group service. It also covers the pitfalls of board service: legal responsibilities, personal liabilities, meeting notes information, working relationship with the CEO/management team, etc. This is a good short book to read before joining the leadership of a non profit, social, or religious organization board.
