If you have been asked to serve on a nonprofit board, to make it an optimal experience some questions need to be clarified about the expectations of board members.
"The pleasures of being a nonprofit board member are many. But here’s one thing many board members don’t want to be: cash machines.

They also may be surprised by the financial commitment the charity expects of them. To avoid such financial surprises, here are three questions donors need to ask before they join a nonprofit board:"--Veronica Dagher, The Wall Street Journal
