9780787951337: The Art of Trusteeship: The Nonprofit Board Members Guide to Effective Governance

The well-being of any nonprofit organization rests first with its volunteer board of directors. This book offers board members the guidance they need to successfully govern their organizations--no matter what type or size of nonprofit they may lead.

Written by Candace Widmer and Susan Houchin, The Art of Trusteeship shows you how to fulfill ten key trustee responsibilities and includes much-needed detail on defining mission, strategic planning, executive selection and evaluation, fundraising, financial oversight, and board self-assessment. This hands-on guide is filled with illustrative case studies and real-life examples that clearly show how a variety of creative boards have tackled challenges and strengthened their organizations.

"At last, a book that doesn't take a one-size-fits-all approach! The authors recognize that the huge diversity among nonprofits calls for multiple ways of fulfilling basic board responsibilities. The book allows a board member to dive in at any point and find a concise, clear set of options for handling the challenges of trusteeship. It will help even first-time board members find firm footing on the path to effective governance."
--Sara L. Engelhardt, president, The Foundation Center

They are entrusted to the care and direction of a board of directors.The Art of Trusteeship is a practical and down-to-earth guide that helps nonprofit board members fulfill their critical responsibilities with both wisdom and grace. Authors Candace Widmer and Susan Houchin—experts in the field of board governance-have developed an approach to board leadership that is both user—friAndly and flexible. It can be used by trustees from any type of nonprofit organization, whatever its mission, membership, or size. This book provides the information board members need to do everything from craft a mission statement to assess the organization's and the board's success. Step-by-step, the authors show how to provide oversight of nonprofit organizations and, at the same time, focus on strategic issues.
