The case for annual board orientation
from By William D. Pawlucy and Robert C. Harris
Imagine starting a new job with a gamut of responsibilities, and there is no orientation or manual. Volunteers accept a role but may not understand their duties as trustees and as fiduciaries on behalf of the membership. The best relationship with new directors starts with the statement: "Welcome to the board, here is the leadership manual, which includes everything you’ll need to govern." Yet, some organizations don’t have a manual for the leadership, and many don’t provide board orientation.
