Review - 'Effective governance will be a key differentiating factor for charities as they look to attract future volunteer and philanthropic support. Charities that do it well will be much better positioned for success.' - Ted Garrad, President and CEO, Sick Kids Foundation

Review #2 - 'The work of a volunteer board can mean the success or failure of a not-for-profit corporation. With the right governance structures and approach, an organization's work can be amplified many times over by its board. Without a responsible approach to board governance and engagement, an organization's vision and mission can quickly be obscured by mismanagement and organizational chaos. Rob Peacock's guide to volunteer board engagement provides an exceptional roadmap to the design and implementation of effective boards and board policies.' - Jeff Melanson, Executive Director and Co-CEO, Canada's National Ballet School
