Project Description


More than 20 experienced directors and business specialists contributed to the third edition of David Fishel’s The Book of the Board, which includes new and updated material on the governance of non-profit boards.

The Book of the Board has become Australia’s standard reference book for board and committee members of non-profit organisations. It provides clear guidance on the role of the board, formal and legal responsibilities, and the ways in which the board can maximise its effectiveness for the organisation.

This extract has been adapted from the Introduction to the new edition. Click here for more information, and a list of the book’s contents.

A selection of key interviews are included in the book; however, there were many thoughtful and informative interviews which could not be included in the latest edition. The following interviewees have been happy to approve the separate publication of their interview transcripts:

  • Carolyn Barker, AIM FAIM, AM
  • Dr Judith McLean
  • Lee-Anne Perry AM
  • Lynne Wannan
  • Paul Wright AM
