Co-Editors, JNEL Special Issue

On behalf of the Governance Section of the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA), we are pleased to present this special issue of the Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership, which consists of seven governance case studies.

The cases were developed as part of two governance symposiums organized during the 2015 and 2016 ARNOVA conferences; the 2015 symposium was cosponsored by The Nonprofit Quarterly and the 2016 symposium was cosponsored by the Alliance for Nonprofit Management, the national organization of capacity-builders.

Written and presented by leading scholars in the field, these case studies provide wonderful learning tools focused on governance in the classroom and in training workshop settings and are designed for instructors, consultants, students, board members, and executive directors.

In addition to the case “story,” each case study includes an instructor/trainer guide and a student/training-participant study guide including a list of activities and discussion questions.

In addition, we include a list of printed and electronic resources for both of the case study themes.
