Kate Barr is a respected member of the nonprofit community in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. So, when we saw her recent article published on Nonprofitquarterly.org, we took notice.
In How Board Members Can Learn to Spot Red Flags, Kate points to many examples where Board involvement could have made the difference in the health of the nonprofit they served. She acknowledges that nonprofit business models can be complex and it is often difficult to spot issues when you are in the role of providing governance rather than management.
Her solution is simple: Ask good questions!
We could not agree more with this stance (see one of our posts on this issue).
Kate’s article is worth the read and a valuable piece of content to share with any board members you may know.
