Terrie Temkin guides a star-studded cast of collaborators in creating a board volume that delivers the wisdom of the nonprofit world’s leading practitioners, researchers, and provocateurs. This easily-digestible book is a must for board directors and anyone who is interested in effective nonprofit leadership. The focused, short-essay format makes it easy for the reader to absorb the authors’ thinking on a variety of topics: some traditional—such as board member roles and responsibilities, recruitment, meeting management, and evaluation—and others not so much. For instance, you’ll find articles on coaching for directors, the value of conversation, and several new structures for governance.YOU and Your Nonprofit Board: Advice and Practical Tips from the Field’s Top Practitioners, Researchers, and Provocateurs is a book of how not what. Eschewing a single perspective of governance, it is suggestive, not prescriptive. And it invites you to be part of the dialogue. It is the first governance book of its kind to:

  • Re-examine nonprofit governance at its essence
  • Challenge dogma about the board versus chief executive role
  • Let YOU decide if you still agree with the old thinking on governance
  • Take aim at myths about governance that hold organizations back
  • Provide practical, in-the-trenches advice and tips you can use NOW

Whether you are new to the field or have been immersed in it for years, you will find new ideas to help you navigate today’s fast-paced, information-saturated reality in which wise practice is rapidly evolving.

Karen is proud to be one of the “star-studded cast of collaborators” who helped to write this book. You’ll find Karen’s contribution, “Almost Magic: How to Create a Board that Supports Your Nonprofit” in Part Two: Making It Work.
