Boards of directors are a critical resource for nonprofit organizations in many ways. They fulfill legal obligations, but also play an important part in organizational culture, strategic focus and governance as well as financial sustainability. And they serve as advocates and ambassadors.

One of the most important duties is hiring and setting compensation for general managers and CEOs. This is a significant decision that could have an impact on the growth of the business and its strategy. It isn’t easy to find someone who fits this role.

Monitoring management’s performance and evaluating risk are other important tasks. This can be done through regular meetings and discussions as well as examining policies to manage risks. A board could set up an oversight committee to examine specific areas or projects to ensure that they’re going according to plan, and to limit risks.

The board’s responsibility also involves recruiting new talent. This can be achieved by recruiting individuals who are committed and possess the required expertise and experience. This involves identifying and evaluating potential members for future elections. It can be a long process to attract new members, but it’s vital to have a solid board.
