[Link] How To Be A Great Board Member—And Avoid Being A Not So Great One

I think board mem­ber­ship is one area that is less talked about in the EA com­mu­nity. Much of the work in the EA com­mu­nity is done through non­prof­its, and non­prof­its have boards. It’s of­ten challeng­ing for new board mem­bers to un­der­stand their role and max­i­mize their benefit to the or­ga­ni­za­tion. I wrote this to help. I also wrote this to re­cruit board mem­bers to The Cen­ter for Elec­tion Science. Like many non­prof­its, we’re of­ten in re­cruit­ment mode.

I hope you find this helpful. I’d be happy to take any feed­back and learn from oth­ers’ ex­pe­riences on and with boards. I tend to write these kinds of non­profit pieces when I’m not writ­ing on vot­ing the­ory.
