Our friends at BoardSource have many articles to read and videos to watch -- you could spend hours on their site. One of their online resources is this 10-minute video on the history of nonprofit governance over the last 20 years.
BoardSource has done a great service by producing this video, which helps board members and administrators gain a perspective on how best practices have evolved over two decades. It could easily be used at a board retreat, or board members could be asked to view it before arriving at the next meeting.
