The National Council of Nonprofits has one of the most comprehensive and useful resource pages available on the board of director’s role and responsibilities. It contains links to numerous sub-topics, such as compensation, orientation, how to have difficult conversations, policies to consider, and more. While credit unions are not technically “non profits,” the information is still relevant since you are also volunteer board members.
If you are looking for a strong read to start the new year, this is it! You can also sign up to receive their free monthly newsletter and get easy access to their insight and resources.
