A nonprofit Board’s Executive Committee (ExCom) is essential for the smooth running of the Board and the organization. Why is that?
The most important question for achieving an engaged nonprofit board is to ask regularly “Why do you care?” An organization that loses sight of the answer to this question is likely not going to have an inspired and engaged board.
One often hears criticisms of nonprofit boards, which usually don’t take into account the many hats board members are expected to wear and all the good work that they do as volunteers. Seasoned nonprofit board leader Jacqueline Rixen shares her insights into governing a nonprofit board.
Cash reserves are key for nonprofit survival. The number one reason nonprofits fail is the lack of positive cash reserves. It is the Board’s responsibility to ensure that they are in place. We invited nonprofit operations consultant Sean Hale to share with us his thoughts on how best to address this important issue.
Former board members are hidden assets in plain sight! They typically have a wealth of knowledge, experience and a passion for your mission and can be powerful contributors in strengthening your organization for years to come. Capitalize on their value by intentionally keeping them involved in whichever way works for them and your organization.
