There are some excellent books already on the market that cover the gamut of roles and responsibilities, recruitment, running meetings, evaluation, and more. Editor Terrie Temkin didn't want to compete with them. Instead, Temkin guided a star-studded cast of collaborators into a smart book plan, creating a board volume that delivers the dearly bought wisdom of the nation's leading practitioners, researchers, and provacateurs in ready bites of insight. Read these in short blasts, and you've absorbed centuries of wisdom. This book is a must for board geeks, board members, and top leadership. 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. It aims to be suggestive rather than prescriptive. It recognizes today's reality-a reality where so much of what was accepted as best practice for years no longer works very well. It is equally of benefit to newbies and old-timers, to board members and executive directors, as well as consultants and interested community members. And, it represents different perspectives of governance rather than just one point of view. This is first governance book of its kind to: Reexamine nonprofit governance at its essence Challenge dogma about the board versus chief executive roles 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 About the Author Terrie Temkin, PhD, is widely considered by her peers to be a preeminent thought leader in the field of governance. She is a founding principal of the international consulting firm CoreStrategies for Nonprofits Inc. and is a cocreator of the new governance framework, Community-Engagement Governance(TM), discussed in this book.
