Nonprofit Board Chairs Study Report Now Available

Voices of Nonprofit Board Chairs reflects the voices of 635 nonprofit board chairs across the United States. The study was conducted by the Alliance's Governance Affinity Group and is intended as a first step in hearing directly from board chairs about their experiences and perceptions, acknowledging the importance of the leadership role of board chairs and the significant dearth of research in this area.  

 

Although there is much prescriptive information in the field, there is surprising little research or evidence to back up these assertions.  As one of the few studies on board chairs, this study sought to answer two research questions:  How do individuals prepare for their role as chair of a nonprofit board? and, what do board chairs perceive their leadership roles to be in relationship to the board, the community, and the CEO?

 

To learn about the findings, implications for practice, and access the research report, please download the report here.  The Research Team is available for workshops, talks, webinars and articles based on this research. For more information, please contact, Governance Membership Affinity Group Chair,Judy Freiwirth.

“I Believe in the Power of Storytelling.” A Q&A with LISC’s Tope Folarin, Whose Novel Debuts this Week

“She told me I could serve her in heaven.” From that powerful opening line in A Particular Kind of Black Man, award-winning author Tope Folarin leads readers through an exploration of identity as seen through the eyes of a first-generation Nigerian-American. Folarin, whose “day job” is as LISC’s vice president of content and storytelling, says the story is relevant not just because of its connection to immigration and race, but because it looks at the way people struggle to build their own personal narratives…to live into their own stories. On the eve of his book tour, he talked about how his work as a novelist intersects with his work at LISC.
