Board Governance in Practice [Muttart Foundation]

Board Governance in Practice [Muttart Foundation]

A board does much more than govern the use of funds entrusted to it. In fact, boards have accumulated a number of responsibilities and duties that go well beyond simple fiscal trusteeship. It should also be noted that an organization can exist just as a board, without staff or other individuals involved. At its essence, the board is entrusted with the heart and soul of an organization; should all else disappear, the organization can continue with only its board as the critical organ of decision-making and legal identity.
