For most nonprofits, fiscal, operational and most other responsibility is enacted through a collaborative effort that involves its Board of Directors, the Executive Director and a senior officer. For a board to successfully use its function, it must be fully informed and fully engaged with the organization’s operations. Ultimately, the board is responsible for the governance of an organization, and the board will not be able to fulfill its obligations without proper information.
