"Why don't board members do what they're supposed to do?" Board members not meeting performance expectations is one of the most challenging issues faced by nonprofit organizations and causes considerable frustration among nonprofit leaders-and they usually place the blame on board members.  However, much of what has been written on this topic is based on opinions and experiences of staff professionals, with solutions focused on more training of the board members. Yet the problem persists. So whatever advice that has been offered hasn't worked. Hardy's book is different.

Author and expert leadership consultant Hardy Smith will be at the Chamber to discuss the most difficulties contributing to boards not performing as desired are self-inflicted by leaders who repeat flawed practices that could be avoided.
