Why is a board necessary?
Beyond the fact that U.S. law requires each nonprofit organization establish a board of directors, the board plays a primary and important role in nonprofit organizations. They have vast responsibility, yet, unlike staff members, aren't paid for their work. A well-structured, well-managed and well-trained volunteer board is a must for ensuring nonprofit organizations carry out their mission and vision in the community.
In addition, an effective board ensures the future viability of the organization through fundraising and strategic planning activities. Chose well: They are the backbone of your organization.
