I recently collected twenty particularly useful posts from this blog to create a primer for new board members. This overview of important issues can be found here or by selecting "board training manual" from the "categories" menu on the right. More posts will be added to the manual in the months ahead. Next year, I intend to reorganize the material in the manual and make that resource available on my office's website. I hope that this project helps many new board members understand how to properly fulfill their leadership roles in their communities.
