Resource Library
The Center for Community Engagement offers resources for nonprofit boards and board leaders to enable them to adopt best practices in governance. This resource library offers a wide variety of articles, websites, and best practice models or templates. Many of the models have links to nonprofit organizations that are already employing them and are willing to share information on them.
