Abstract:  Gahlinger-Beanune provides a reference book on the management and operation of a Canadian non-profit organization. She offers practical advice on a comprehensive range of technical and organizational issues.

The book is divided into six chapters, the first of which covers the planning necessary for starting up a non-profit. The second explains the composition and roles of the board of directors. The third gives advice on the successful operation of board meetings. The fourth looks at volunteer management. The fifth deals with different methods of fund raising. Finally, the sixth chapter is concerned with communication, such as public relations and advertising.

In all, the book provides a clear guide to the practical aspects of non-profits. Organizers, especially those without formal training, should find the practical and detailed advice helpful.
