Table of Contents and Introduction

Level 201

To thrive and succeed, all things must be properly fed and cared for. A nonprofit board is no different. The governance committee ensures the constant health and effectiveness of the full board and the work it performs for the organization. It expands the traditional idea of a nominating committee, clarifying the variety of responsibilities a governance committee truly has.
In Governance Committee, we discuss this group's challenging responsibility in overseeing the performance of the board and managing compliance to the organization's mission. Discover how this committee can help all boards — new or seasoned — live up to their highest potential, keeping board members energized and engaged in maintaining value and control.

We also cover

  • the nine-step board building cycle as a framework for the governance committee's responsibility to the board
  • where to look for new board members and how to maintain a balanced board
  • how to be successful in board orientation and continuing education
  • useful case studies involving question-and-answer situations for board members to consider
