10 Things Every Board Member Should Know and Understand

Let’s say you’ve just joined a nonprofit board. You’re flattered. You really love the work the organization does. You have a general sense of the role of a board member – something about ‘governance’ and yes, you probably heard the word “fundraising.”

But you’re also thinking to yourself: I bet I don’t know half of what being a new board member entails. Or even, what did I get myself into?

And now let’s say your organization has a harried Executive Director (this may be redundant) who really should have put together a strong board orientation but there just wasn’t time. And maybe the board members who recruited you soft-peddled fundraising or time commitment or all of the above.

Does any of this sound familiar?
