Ten Basic Responsibilities of Nonprofit Boards (Governance) by Richard T. Ingram

BoardSource’s all-time bestseller, with more than 175,000 copies sold, not only explores the board’s 10 core responsibilities, it also puts them into the context of the governance challenges facing nonprofits today. This new, expanded edition clarifies and distinguishes the board’s responsibilities from those of the chief executive and senior staff. In addition, it includes two appendixes, one covering the individual responsibilities of board members and the other providing a sample self-assessment for individual board members.
