Archived Trendcast: The Recession’s Gift – A New Opportunity for Boards to Excel

Print Share on LinkedIn More

Is there a best practice for boards that has emerged out of the recession? Jeanne Bell, CEO of CompassPoint Nonprofit Services and an expert in nonprofit management and finance has observed that some boards have been forced to take a deeper look at financial and organizational design as a result of changing revenue streams and that the new practice will serve nonprofits far better than simple financial oversight… if boards can retain the practice even as the recovery occurs.

Jeanne is an incisive, no nonsense thinker on nonprofit finances and a fascinating speaker. Jeanne is CEO of CompassPoint Nonprofit Services—one of the country’s leading providers of training, leadership development, and consulting services to community-based organizations. She is the co-author of Nonprofit Sustainability: Making Strategic Decisions for Financial Viability (Jossey-Bass) and of Financial Leadership for Nonprofit Executives: Guiding Your Organization to Long Term Success (Wilder).
