Application: Governance Structure

All nonprofit organizations have a board of directors that governs the organization. In addition to the governance structure, that is, what constitutes the totality of the organization's governance, many organizations also have advisory committees or other standing committees (personnel, nominating, fundraising, etc.) to help them to achieve their mission. The board of directors, nongoverning volunteers, and standing and advisory committees need to have a clear and comprehensive understanding of their roles and the responsibilities that accompany them. Having this understanding contributes to an organization's likelihood of fulfilling its mission among other things.

To prepare for this assignment:

 

  • Review Chapter 1 in the course text, The High-Performance Board. Pay particular attention to the process and principles of quality board governance.
  • Review Chapter 1 in the course text, Extraordinary Board Leadership. Consider the role standing committees play in organizational governance structure.

The assignment (1-2 pages) APA Format:

  • Compare (similarities and differences) elements of governance structures in nonprofit organizations (e.g., executive committees, advisory committees, standing committees). Select at least three to compare.
  • Explain what insight or understanding you now have about governance in nonprofit organizations as a result of your comparison.
