About It’s All About the Board- Taking Your Nonprofit to the Next Level by Doug Linder:
Do you want to take your nonprofit to the next level?
Having spent most of my career with a national leader in the nonprofit space, I’ve had the opportunity to learn from many outstanding, and highly knowledgeable colleagues—both within and outside our organization’s movement. It’s All About the Board brings this accumulated knowledge to you.
My leadership experience varied from a small nonprofit to a growing medium-sized organization. In each of my roles, I found myself leading turn-around efforts. The teams I was fortunate to lead, including the board, staff, and volunteers, successfully took the organization to the next level and beyond. The secrets to growing these organizations are contained in this book.
Along the way, I learned best practices for virtually every type of issue and situation. Being the leader or in the top leadership of the board or staff is demanding. Challenges and obstacles are common in nonprofit leadership. I found that having as many best practices as possible in place makes it much easier to focus on problems as they arise. I teach these principles in my book.
In this book, you’ll learn strategies, techniques, and systems that will develop and improve board development and membership, fundraising, the major donor campaign, the governance committee, and the importance of assessing your board! Written by a seasoned Nonprofit Consultant, It’s All About the Board is packed with information vital to your nonprofit’s growth and success. Complete your bookshelf with this book today!
