[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.
