The Board of Directors

Video #1 introduces basic functions of a governing body that oversees a nonprofit organization as it carries out its mission. Because a board of directors is legally and financially responsible for how the organization operates, members have many responsibilities and are critical decision makers. They must be informed and make sure their organization is meeting the needs of the community it serves.
