A "Must Have" Resource for Any Director!

While this book is written for non-profit boards, anyone on any type of board can gain insight from this book. It is packed with great perspectives to keep a board focused and on track to achieve ultimate effectiveness and efficiency. Edgar uses great examples to drive home his points. If you serve on a board and do not have this book, you are missing a valuable guide!

Very practical and helpful

I found this book to be extremely practical and helpful, and I bought extra copies for other members of our board's executive committee. Our board meetings in the past have been long and unfocused, and we have many folks that are new to board service. This book provided practical resources to help us understand our role, how our meetings should be conducted, and how we should work with and support the staff. I really appreciated the templates provided for board orientation and annual review of the executive director.

Great Primer on Board Service

This book is a fantastic primer for those considering non-profit board service or even for those who have served on numerous board. Stoesz has had a wide experience in boardmanship. He has taken the best of his experience and put it concisely in a handbook for board members. John Carver, the guru on boards, once said, "the one thing all boards have in common is that they do not function". This book will help any board member function as part of a board team and help the board succeed, which in turn helps the non-profit succeed. It would be the best $10 investment any board member could make. This book gives the tools to take a non-profit board to the next level.
