responsibilities of a Governing Board

One of the many responsibilities of a Governing Board is to ensure an organization’s image is not tarnished. To be effective, it is essential to recruit skilled board members. To do so, they need to be effective in their role. As an organization grows, often the board will, too, which makes it essential to recruit skilled board members. Systems still need to be in place to ensure board members receive orientation, training, evaluation, and any other necessary steps to ensure the board is effective.

To prepare for this Discussion, reflect on any experiences you have had as a board member and what you think the roles of boards will be in the future.

By Day 3

Post a personal experience you may have had as a board member, if any, of a nonprofit organization wherever you reside in the world. Provide an analysis of what you foresee for the future of a nonprofit governing board of a nonprofit organization of your choice. Explain whether you anticipate greater demands for boards and their members to be more accountable (or accountable in different way) than is the case today. If so, how? Please explain your perspective and defend it with evidence from the field or from the literature.
