Each director owes governance duties to the non-profit corporate body they govern and they will be personally responsible for the proper discharge of those duties. This focus on individual responsibility can be easily overlooked by directors who otherwise work as a team through the board structures. However, when legal proceedings are issued, the name of the individual director, not the board is on the writs. Further, parliaments are making individual board members as liable as the organisation for breaches of the law done in the name of the non-profit organisation, so directors are being individually sued as well as the organisation in legal proceedings.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
