NFPs are refered to under law as Public Purpose organizations for a reason; it is recognized that governments (National, Provincial & Municipal) cannot do everything and as such, legislation exists for groups of people within society to come together to form organizations to fill the gaps where governments fall short or are unable to work.
The Board of Directors (with the CEO as an Non-Voting member) is the responsible group for the governance of any NFP; and with that responsibility is ultimately legally accountable for the organization as a whole under the law.
While many organizations can and do provide orientation to existing or new Board members, this orientation is often more about the functions as a Director with that particular organization and is not targeted at building capacity or the skills of individual Directors or the Board as a whole.
