Ten Basic Responsibilities of Nonprofit Boards

October 9, 2013 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


As volunteer leaders, board members play an important role in the success of the organization. Boards have significant legal and ethical responsibilities to their members, staff, and organization. This workshop will cover the fundamentals of effective governance by defining the basic roles and responsibilities of the board and examining strategies for building effective board structures.

Participants will receive a copy of the BoardSource bestseller, Ten Basic Responsibilities of Nonprofit Boards ($29 value). This book not only explores the board’s 10 core responsibilities, it also puts them into the context of the governance challenges facing nonprofits today. It clarifies and distinguishes the board’s responsibilities from those of the chief executive and senior staff. In addition, it includes two appendixes, one covering the individual responsibilities of board members and the other providing a sample self-assessment for individual board members.

We recommend you come as an organizational team, your organization’s Executive Director attend or Board Leaders if possible. While these organization members are not required to attend, it would have a greater impact on your organization and board.
