The Book of the Board has become Australia’s standard reference book for board and committee members of not-for-profit organisations. It provides clear guidance on the role of the board, formal and legal responsibilities, and the ways in which the board can maximise its effectiveness for the organisation.

Much is changing in the non-profit world, and this 3rd edition has been designed with that in mind. New material has been added on the competitive environment, on strategic planning, on risk management and on fundraising. Significant contributions have been added from several specialists.

Revisions and amendments particular to this edition include:

  • In-depth interviews with four of Australia’s most experienced board members: David Gonski, Rupert Myer, Heather Watson and Simon McKeon;
  • Expert contributions and opinion pieces on topics such as fundraising, improving board effectiveness, technology and governance, and impact investing from such authorities as: Frankie Airey, Dr Pieter-Jan Bezemer, Cathy Hunt, Elizabeth Jameson, Myles McGregor-Lowndes and Gavin Nicholson;
  • Newly edited charts and diagrams throughout, providing easy reference on key topics;
  • New checklists and resources.
