About Board Members Rule: How to Be a Strategic Advocate for Your Nonprofit:

"We hear complaints about boards: they are ineffective, won't fundraise, can't read a financial statement and the list goes on and on. But we don't hear enough about how boards educate their members about their responsibilities. [This book] helps to rectify this situation." -- Scott Ullman, San Francisco Foundation Center

Board Members Rule reframes a board member's role to be a strategic advocate for your nonprofit and its constituency. Given the heightened awareness of accountability and transparency, Board Members Rule shows how to pay attention to both while furthering your values, mission and vision and promoting pragmatic, effective and efficient strategies. Geared for busy board members, it includes succinct chapters on fiduciary responsibilities, financial oversight, relationships with the CEO, fundraising and marketing, recruiting for talent and diversity, strategic planning, self-evaluation and making meetings meaningful. It's filled with practical and common-sense tools, resources, forms, examples and learning exercises.

This easy to follow guidebook is designed for board members and volunteers of nonprofits who want to help solicit funds through a major donor campaign effort and want a brief overview of what is involved.
