American Jewish Leaders View Board-Staff Relations
In this chapter of Board-Staff Relations for the 21st Century, the authors report on the results of a study that reflects on the views that American Jewish leaders have on board-staff relations. The authors begin by highlighting several models of board-staff governance in the non-profit sector. The study finds that while professionals and volunteer leaders view professionals as being competent to a great extent, large majorities of volunteers and professionals do not view volunteer leaders to be competent. The study also found that professionals and volunteer were in strong agreement about the need for effectiveness and efficiency. The authors conclude by asserting that the study’s results should be read and applied within the framework of the challenges facing Jewish organizations so that boards and staffs can be better equipped to overcome these challenges.
