Board Members' Involvement in Nonprofit Governance
McDonald, Catherine (1993) Board Members' Involvement in Nonprofit Governance. [Working Paper]
Over the past decade, the nonprofit sector has vigorously engaged in developing its management capacity and expertise, resulting in part in the growth of normative literature devoted to excellence in nonprofit management. However, doubts have been expressed about the empirical and theoretical basis of this literature (Fink, 1989., Middleton, 1987, 1991). Furthermore, while advice directed specifically at the management of and functioning of voluntary boards is developing, again it is primarily prescriptive as opposed to empirical (Chait and Taylor, 1989, Drucker, 1990).
