Billions of dollars are raised, managed, administered and spent in the nonprofit sector in Australia.
This book is a guide to the role and responsibilities of the voluntary committee or board in delivering services to members, service-users and the wider community. It looks at why anyone would accept a voluntary management position – particularly at a time when money is hard to find and community needs are escalating.
Despite all the hassles, becoming a committee or board member can be challenging, rewarding and fulfilling.
This book offers a better and easier way to be a member of a voluntary committee or board, and to be a better committee or board. It is not a story book – it is a practical how-to and how-not-to book.
