How do you determine when to step into a board leadership role?
Leadership begins when you accept a seat on the board. Period. Once you do, you should understand the responsibilities that come with the seat. As a board member, you should investigate every corner of your organization’s mission and structure. Familiarize yourself not only with the duties of a general board member, but with the duties of each officer or committee person.
