What's on your board's reading list?
from By Robert C. Harris
Good counsel for an incoming board chair is "read to lead." While the advice is sound, it deserves explanation. Every organization has a "governance reading list." Without exception, board members should have access. The chair especially should become fully versed with the bylaws and budget. Bylaws are the rules adopted to guide governance. They may include sections about membership categories, term limits, officer duties, election processes, amendments and more.
