The Guidebook for Directors of Nonprofit Organizations, Third Edition is a valuable reference book for directors and prospective directors of nonprofit corporations, from the smallest corporation that operates principally at a local or even neighborhood level, to the largest nonprofit corporation having operations that extend not only across the United States but internationally as well.
