RESPECT FOR DEDICATION OF NONPROFIT MANAGERS & STAFF

 

Contents of “Policy vs. Paper Clips” – Third Edition (See Amazon Books)

The book is about developing a governance model which is professional, flexible, and efficient, has a simple structure (3 standing committees), requires a secure chief executive, has strong planning & assessment components, operates with a high degree of trust and keeps board members involved while developing policies. If all of this comes together in a reasonable, not perfect, manner it brings about a new relationship between the management, staff and board.

This book’s content has been developed from the experiences of a volunteer director who has a significant respect for the dedication of nonprofit managers and staff to their clients.
