Are you new to a board and have no idea what’s expected of you? Do you know what a board’s six key responsibilities are? Do you know what your relationship with the Executive Director should be? If not, this book is for you.

So many board members—especially of small nonprofits—want to support a nonprofit and readily accept the invitation to join the board. It’s only then that they discover they are in over their heads, with no idea of their expectations and responsibilities. The Little Book of Boards is here to throw that drowning board member a rope.

Told with a conversational style, this book will lead you through the basics of being on a board, how meetings work, and what’s expected between meetings. In addition, at the back of the book are several in-depth resources for understanding Roberts Rules of Order, bylaws, committee structures, board leadership, and much more. Perfect for any new board member—or for an entire board that is feeling lost—this book and its common sense approach will serve you every year you are on the board.

About the author

Based on his years of nonprofit fundraising and leadership, Hanberg published The Little Book of Gold, a fundraising guide for small (and very small) nonprofits.

When he was just 23, Erik Hanberg was hired to run a non-profit arts organization with an annual budget just over $600,000. Two years later, he had increased the budget to $800,000, and increasing fundraising more than 400%.

Since then he has worked in development at multi-million dollar non-profit, and has volunteered on many boards.

He was most recently the Executive Director of a small civic non-profit and currently sits on the distribution committee for a foundation that gives away more than $200,000 a year.

In 2013 he published The Little Book of Likes, a social media guide for small and (and very small) nonprofits based on his social media and marketing experience for nonprofits, small businesses, and his own election to public office in 2011.
