From Jeans to Jackets: Navigating the transition to more systematic governance in the voluntary sector

Author: Barbara Laskin

This paper explores the transitions many voluntary organizations undergo as they move from an informal approach to governance or “jeans” toward one that is more systematic or formal – “jackets”. It discusses key areas of difficulty and offers guidance to non-profits in developing an effective board-staff relationship.
