Great Boards
for Small Groups

If your board is less than perfect — like just about every nonprofit board — read this book. You’ll find dozens of practical ideas and easy-to-use tools. Great Boards for Small Groups covers recruitment, trustee job descriptions, running effective meetings, and raising money. It also includes a series of “how to fix it” chapters on poor meeting attendance, micro-management, follow-through on commitments, promoting turnover, and conflicts of interest.

The publisher offers deep discounts for bulk orders – buy one for each of your board members.
