What does it take to successfully develop a strong and effective grassroots nonprofit board? David P. Moxley’s Beyond Oversight: Developing Grassroots Nonprofit Boards for Community and Institutional Change provides nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations with a uniquely authoritative answer to that question. Based on his three decades of work with nonprofit organizations and their boards—principally in the areas of organizational development and achievement of results—Moxley’s book offers a comprehensive perspective on board development that respects how individual organizations must make their own specific decisions about how governance will produce value in community service.

Increasingly, nonprofit or nongovernmental organizations are playing integral roles in community and social change, and their boards are critical structures to the achievement of institutional effectiveness. Throughout the book, Moxley maintains a focus on the community service organization and what makes it distinctive as an agent of social change. Structured as a roadmap, the book offers specific steps for newly founded boards as well as for those that are working to revitalize their leadership.

With its numerous examples and guidelines, this book is relevant to senior organizational administrators working directly with boards, board members themselves, students preparing for careers in community service, and activists engaging in social change efforts at the community level. Beyond Oversight: Developing Grassroots Nonprofit Boards for Community and Institutional Change is one of the best investments you can make in your organization’s governing body.
