Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

In Called to Serve internationally respected CEO Max De Pree offers experienced advice on how to create a successful nonprofit board.

Now retired as chairman of the board of Herman Miller Inc., Max De Pree has been lauded by Forbes, Fortune, and The Wall Street Journal as one of the most sensitive and successful leaders in the business world. This experience comes through clearly as De Pree lays out the nuts and bolts of nonprofit organization and provides the direction necessary to establish and nurture a volunteer board.

Based on De Pree's many years of service on nonprofit boards, his work as a consultant in the field, and his work as a teacher who has already used this material successfully in numerous seminar settings, Called to Serve will benefit readers involved with any of the wide range of volunteer-based organizations, from boards of churches, hospitals, and libraries to boards of public works, foundations, and schools.
