A CLEAR, COOPERATIVE, AND COMPREHENSIVE WAY TO GOVERN
AND MANAGE YOUR NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
While there is widespread acceptance of the principle, “The Board sets policy and the staff implements policy,” there remains many questions about how this relationship should be operationalized. This often leads to conflict and confusion between board members and the CEO of the organization.
Without clear guidelines, time and relationships are wasted arguing over who is superior, the Board Chair or the CEO, when in fact, they should work together as a team.
The Complementary Model of Board Governance was created to set clear guidelines on the roles of the volunteer board and paid staff.
This model encourages volunteer board members to provide progressive, collective leadership and direction to the organization and for the CEO to oversee the implementation of the board’s policies and managing the organization’s resources.
