Principle 3A: Board Roles eLearning Course

Course Description
This module covers Principle 3A from the Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence. Best practices include:

  • Understanding the organization’s legal requirements
  • Reviewing the role of the board of directors
  • Implementing succession plans and budgets
  • Reviewing the boards performance

A nonprofit’s board of directors is the organization’s steward and is responsible for developing and maintaining public trust by ensuring effective movement toward the organization’s mission.

To be effective, the role of the board members needs to be clearly defined and focus on providing overall leadership and strategic direction to the organization. Nonprofit boards set policy, ensure that the organization has adequate resources to carry out its mission, and provides oversight and direction for the Executive Director.
