Designing and Managing Successful Committees

When nonprofit law was created in the 1950’s, the board and committee model was based on utilizing volunteers who had abundant time.  It worked.  There were only 30,000 nonprofits.  Today there are more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations in the United States.  And, these nonprofits need 25.5 million people to fill their board and committee seats.

Since then times have changed, and today’s economic climate has made it more challenging for leaders to lead.  Volunteer time and financial resources have diminished even as the need for competent leaders has grown.   Making your organization attractive and efficient is critical to recruiting and retaining leaders and supporting your organization’s mission.
