Non-profits are often staffed by paid employees, but in order to comply with government regulations enabling them to operate under the rules of a non-profit, they must be governed by a Board of Directors. In the case of the majority of smaller non-profits, these Boards consist of unpaid volunteers (or those who receive a small stipend, are compensated for their travel, etc. yet do not draw a salary) and in serving on the board each person is sacrificing time away from their families, their businesses and themselves to help their organization serve as many of those in need in their community as possible.
Recognizing this sacrifice, board members and staff at an organization alike should work together to optimize the time donated on behalf of the organization in order to achieve maximum results. The Resource Group offers comprehensive Board Development and Training, enabling organizations to optimize the results they can generate from their board members while training board members to maximize their volunteer time, offering the most they can to the organizations they care about.
