The board and the "workers" (the staff and the volunteers) have separate and distinct roles, but are all integral to the success of the community organisation they serve. Managing the relationships effectively are imperative to the group's efficient and effective functioning.
These help sheets will help you answer these questions and ensure that all sections of your community group - its mind and its body - work together towards the same aim.
