“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” – Psalm 23:1
What business issues are you facing? Is the Lord your chairman? What concerns have you been attempting to address on your own?
The chairman is the highest ranking officer on the board of a corporation. Although there is a slight difference between the board chairman of a non-profit and a for-profit organization, the basic responsibilities are the same. The chairman presides over the meetings and provides leadership to ensure that the organization achieves its mission in a fiscally responsible way. There are times, however, when this title is merely an honorary designation without any actual executive responsibility. This is especially the case with some for-profit organizations. However, in a non-profit environment, the board chairman always has a fiscal obligation because the government requires non-profit entities to be particularly accountable to a board.
