Great Boards & Valuable Board Members

Types: Session Materials, SVPI Resource

Nonprofit boards of directors are responsible for the strategies and financial health of the organizations they serve. While it is a significant responsibility, it can also be an amazing experience, giving people the opportunity to use their talents, skills, connections and ideas to help the organization meet its mission. High-functioning boards are essential to having sustained impact, but dysfunctional boards can stymie growth and cause instability.
