A Practical Guide to Governing Your Volunteer Organization
By Tom Abbott
The purpose of this book is to provide a short, self-contained guide for NPO success – a book of significant value to volunteer directors who serve on the organization’s board. It will also be of benefit to the chief executive officer (CEO) and staff members of the NPO.
The book is intended to be useful to a wide spectrum of NPOs. In particular it is addressed to directors of small to mid-sized organizations, including associations, charities, and public sector groups. The material dealing with planning, governance, board training, and monitoring will also be of benefit to larger NPOs.
