A nonprofit organization is required to have a Board of Directors with clear purpose and governing policies that direct the organization to meet community needs. The Board of Directors draws its authority from and is accountable to the community it serves. A board that truly leads focuses on large issues, and delegates with broad policies to accomplish its mission with care.


The role of a Board of Directors can seem complicated. Boards for All is an easy-to-understand way to learn about the functions of an effective board. By viewing the videos on these web pages, you will find key information about the responsibilities of a governing board, its committees and individual members. Our webcast video training series is a plain language tool for a range of organizations, from self-advocacy groups, to large agencies and advisory committees.


We hope you take this opportunity to learn about boardsmanship and get involved.


Gloria Wong, Executive Director  Olga Sarabia, Board Chair
