The Critical Role of the Board Chair (and more)

Alice Korngold in her Fast Company blog posting offers an excellent outline for how an effective Board chair carries forward her/his duties. Creating that culture of expectation and execution is critical for ensuring that the Board of Directors is helpful to the nonprofit, rather than a hindrance.

I would suggest that her list offers solid guidance for anyone considering any position on a Board. It also offers an opportunity for one of my favorite questions of nominating committees ... if you wouldn't hire that individual to provide leadership within your company, what makes them an excellent candidate for serving on the Board of this nonprofit?
