Starting board reform where it begins: at home

As I prepare to record a podcast for my "Intro to the Nonprofit Sector" class this week, a "boards in a nutshell" lecture, I was pleased to see an interesting post from PhilanthroMedia that offers a nice framing of the essential responsibilities of boards and their individual members.

"Reform of Boards Starts at Home" offers a blending of the familiar -- the three duties that I intend to offer as the foundation (a good refresher for readers who would appreciate revisiting that foundation themselves) and a list of "keys to success" that I find refreshing in their broader focus on what should be obvious but often gets lost in the shuffle of busy lives and too much work on the agenda.

I'm happy to share a link to that post, along with encouragement to read and share with your own boards.
