Every so often, during question-and-answer periods after a presentation to a group of nonprofit leaders, I am asked about advisory boards. What are they really about? How can they best be used? What is their role in an organization?Perhaps it's best to illustrate what they are by first explaining what they are not. An advisory board is not the board of directors. That is, an advisory board does not make policy, define the mission and vision, or hire and evaluate the executive director. Other than those restrictions, it is pretty much an open game.
