You have your mission statement, your organization’s name, and a great idea for a nonprofit...You’re almost ready to roll! Except, you are stumped on who should be on your board of directors. Every organization is different, therefore all boards are comprised differently. However, be sure to avoid these common mistakes people make when choosing people to serve on their organization’s board of directors.
A common scenario: you’re starting a nonprofit and you’re on page one of the incorporation application. So far, so good.
