Serving on our boards ~by Joan Garry
I am here to tell you that solid citizens who are committed to making their community, their school, and their world a better place — those willing to raise their hand for board service — are among the single biggest needs in our society.
So I thought I’d take a different approach to the pitch. I’m taking my cue from Joe Landau. He is a busy professor at Fordham Law and still made the time to serve on a board and then didn’t hide in the rest room when it was time to vote for a chair.
He loved being on a board. Yes, that’s what I said. He loved it.
And it made me think that people misunderstand the value
proposition of joining a nonprofit board.
