Table of Contents and Introduction

Level 101
Committees provide an opportunity for board members to use their expertise to work together on specific projects, while allowing the board to keep its attention on the big picture. It is easy, however, for committee structure to become complicated and ineffective. Boards with too many standing committees may find that their resources are spread too thin and that the work of the full board is repeating that of individual committees.
Transforming Board Structure is an excellent introductory publication for the BoardSource Committee Series. In this essential resource, we provide a fresh look at committees and illustrate how boards can use simple and flexible work groups to streamline the work of the full board. Discover the importance of reducing the number of standing committees and relying more on ad hoc groups and task forces to accomplish tasks on an as-needed basis.
We also cover
  • job descriptions and examples of common standing committees and task forces
  • who should serve on committees and task forces and how to recruit from the outside community
  • paying attention to your board's needs and ensuring your committees are working effectively
  • determining the appropriate sub-structure for your board and how to regularly assess that structure
