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.

Medicare is in desperate need of reform. Program costs are spiraling out of control and threatening to bankrupt the country. Here in Maryland, on average, each Medicare enrollee costs about $11,400 per year - that's a thousand dollars higher than the national average. Policymakers need to determine how to cut the program's costs. However, during that process, they need to be wary of compromising the care of beneficiaries. Some 800,000 Maryland seniors depend on Medicare to survive.

Some months ago, Howard County Council Bill 52 came up for public hearing. This bill, sponsored by the administration, would eliminate the county's Cemetery Preservation Advisory Board. This citizen board was created in 1992, at the urging of then-County Council member Vernon Gray, following the illegal demolition of graves in historic St. Mary's Cemetery (Turf Valley Overlook) during the building of houses atop and within the three-acre cemetery. The new advisory board, to be appointed by the county executive and to serve without compensation, was charged with creating and maintaining a current cemetery inventory and map, and with providing continuing oversight of our cemeteries to insure their preservation.

The federal health care reform law establishes a new body, called the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), responsible for enforcing the annual spending cap in Medicare. The IPAB will consist of 15 presidential appointees and will start making changes to Medicare in 2015. The fundamental problem with this system is there is little recourse in the event IPAB makes a bad decision. The panel's recommendations automatically become law unless Congress overrides them through a three-fifths vote or passes an alternative set of cuts that hit the same spending targets.

A new generation of female philanthropists is growing up in Howard County thanks to the Women's Giving Circle and 14 teenagers who feel as passionately about helping others as their mothers and grandmothers. The Young Women's Giving Circle formed last year as a pilot project, with the goal of teaching high school girls how to become an informed and intentional force for good in the county. Led by high school seniors Jackie Dawson, of Mt. Hebron, and Julie Factor, of Glenelg, members of the small circle with big intentions spent the past 10 months attending workshops on grant making and fundraising, interviewing and visiting various nonprofits, all so they could learn how to raise money and then give it away to a cause they care about.
