What Board Committees Should NOT Be

How can you make sure your board member expertise is put to use, without overloading each individual? Nonprofit board committees make it easy. Committees allow the work that needs to be done to be distributed evenly throughout your board. Clearly, committees can be highly beneficial to a nonprofit board.
