How many members on a board?
There is no agreement on the perfect size for a board.
It is a good practice to have a minimum of 3 different persons serving on your Nonprofit Board at all times But An active, involved board made up of committed people from the community is essential.
Under California law, Less than half of the board of directors of Nonprofit Board can be employees.
Can you be a CEO and a Board member? Yes
Best practice is that organizations NOT have any employees serve on the board TO Avoid confusing the issues of authority and supervision.
