I am trying to develop a curriculum for new board members for my organization about the purpose of a board, what a board does, and how a board works. Due to the nature of our organization, many of our board members are community members rather than professionals , so we are looking for a curriculum that has family friendly language that is easy to follow. Is it alright to use the verbiage from the community tool box articles for this curriculum? Are there any other resources that I could use for this project?
