Executive directors can often feel that the problems they face in working with their board are never ending, every day, and everywhere occurrences. Stephen Block draws on thirty-six years of experience to outline the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit boards and examines the commonbarriers to success. By drawing on the central concepts and values of the social work profession, this book develops of model of board management that empowers executive directors to manage a successful and productive board. The information in the book is as relevant for an experienced director asit is for a student of nonprofit management.The Board Relationship Model is at its core a collegial, partnership-based approach to board management that values the "human element" above all else. It addresses problems from a social work perspective - first assessing the situation to formulate a coherent plan of intervention, implementing theplan, and finally evaluating the results.
