How to Be an Effective Board Member of a Non-Profit

Board members are recruited for a variety of reasons.  Some individuals are talented fundraisers and are sought by charities for that reason.  Others bring credibility and prestige to an organization.  But whatever the reasons for service the principle role of a board member is stewardship.  The directors of a non-profit are ultimately responsible for the management of the affairs for the charity.  This requires active participation.  One of the most important functions of the board is keeping the resources and efforts focused on the charity’s mission.  This requires the board to have an adequate understanding of the organization’s programs, people, and resources available to achieve the organization’s goals.
