The Book of the Board has become Australia’s standard reference book for board and committee members of non-profit organisations. It provides clear guidance on the role of the board, formal and legal responsibilities, and the ways in which the board can maximise its effectiveness for the organisation. Much is changing in the non-profit world, and this third edition of the Book has been designed with that in mind. New material has been added on the competitive environment, on strategic planning, on risk management and on fundraising. Significant contributions have been added from several specialists. Particular revisions and amendments include:

In-depth interviews with four of Australia’s most experienced board members – David Gonski, Rupert Myer, Heather Watson and Simon McKeon Expert contributions and opinion pieces on topics such as fundraising; improving board effectiveness; technology and governance; and impact investing from, amongst others, Frankie Airey, Dr Pieter-Jan Bezemer, Cathy Hunt, Elizabeth Jameson, Myles McGregor-Lowndes and Gavin Nicholson Newly edited charts and diagrams throughout, providing easy reference on key topics New checklists and resources.

**David Fishel conducted many interviews in preparation for the 3rd edition of The Book of the Board. Not all of them could be included in the final publication so we're sharing one of those interviews with you here. Click here to read or download...
