The hottest nonprofit governance book of the summer (or ever) has just been released by CharityChannel Press:

YOU and Your Nonprofit Board: Advice and Tips from the Field's Top Practitioners, Researchers, and Provocateurs

And the reviews are in... YOU and Your Nonprofit Board: Advice and Tips from the Field's Top Practitioners, Researchers, and Provocateurs has been called "simply terrific," "not your typical governance book," "a MUST HAVE resource," and even "a surprisingly entertaining read." You will not want to miss your opportunity to read the book that has been described as providing "a plethora of suggestions, questions, and strategies that will challenge and inspire," that "reads like a conversation among friends—if all your friends are brilliant and brimming with stimulating ideas," and where "even veteran board leaders will learn a thing or two (or thirty) from this collection of thoughtful essays."

Ellen’s article tackles the question of the board’s role in fundraising. Sure there are money-related issues a board needs to delve into as part of its governance responsibilities, but fundraising is not governance!

With 46 thoughtful essays, this is the first governance publication 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
