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.
