Who serves on today's nonprofit boards? How are they composed and organized? How do they conduct their work? How well are they fulfilling their many important roles and responsibilities? What impact are they having on organizational performance?

We encourage you to read the 2017 study; to reflect on the trends and insights about today's nonprofit boards; and to act on the many opportunities we have to lead our missions to further success through exceptional board leadership.
