How to be Effective and Enjoy Serving on a Non-Profit Board  

Rarely is the effectiveness and efficiency of non-profit Boards equivalent to the talent represented on that Board. Too often, the total is less than the sum of the parts. Smart, accomplished, dedicated people find themselves confused and frustrated by Board service. In turn, Boards are often unproductive and wasteful of their member's skills and talents. Much of this can be avoided if Board members better understand non-profit governance, their role as a Board member, and Board dynamics. This course offers guidelines for potential Board members to help promote the efficiency of the Board, and to maximize their effectiveness and enjoyment of Board service.
