In the non-profit world, there is a never-ending cosmic search for the ideal board member.
Sometimes you hit gold and sometimes you can’t believe you were so clueless. When I offered to teach a session at the YWCA Tucson’s 26th Annual Women’s Leadership Conference about the qualities of a good board member, I thought it would be fun to look at the question from the other side. Rather than look at what non-profits want and need, how about some self evaluation? Do you have what it takes to make a good board member?
