The Governing Board's Existential Quandary: An Empirical Analysis of Board Behavior in the Charitable Sector
In this chapter of Board-Staff Relations for the 21st Century, the author looks at nonprofit boards through developmental phases. She affirms that boards evolve from a focus on causes to more professional interests and sees the acknowledgement of these phases as being useful to enterprising staff and board members of nonprofits. Using information from interviews the author conducted with a variety of board members, she asserts that finding the level of board involvement is one of the biggest challenges for executive directors and its board members especially as they move through different phases.
