Many people work in groups in which nobody is paid, everyone is part-time, and everyone can leave any time they want. This includes civic clubs, faith communities, auxiliaries and friends groups, professional societies, sports leagues, and so much more. The board is responsible for the group’s legal, financial and community obligations, and for managing the organizations day-to-day activities, leading other volunteers and getting the work done. If you are involved with one of these all volunteer groups, these two resources will be invaluable.
