Larry Vellani quoted in new publication

Larry Vellani, director of corporate and foundation relations, is quoted in a new publication by Katha Kissman. “Trouble at the Top: The Nonprofit Board’s Guide to Managing an Imperfect Chief Executive” is the latest offering in a special series published by BoardSource, Inc.

"Trouble at the Top," by Katha Kissman

Kissman met Vellani when she served as a national consultant through the Kellogg Foundation to the Alamance County Partnership for Children, Inc., during Vellani’s tenure as the nonprofit agency’s board chair from 2007 – 2009.

"Larry and Elon provide outstanding examples of sound executive practice in the nonprofit sector,” Kissman said, adding that the title of her book is not a reflection of the university itself. On the contrary, she said, Elon does things right.

Katha Kissman is a senior governance consultant with BoardSource and, in addition to “Trouble at the Top,” the author of “Taming the Troublesome Board Member.”

BoardSource is dedicated to advancing the public good by building exceptional nonprofit boards and inspiring board service. BoardSource was established in 1988 by the Association of Governing Boards of Universities & Colleges and the Independent Sector when these two groups recognized the sector’s need for an organization that specifically focused on improving nonprofit effectiveness by strengthening nonprofit boards.
