    Joystick: Guiding and Managing Your Nonprofit Business by Brydon DeWitt, Lou Markwith and Tom McCarty, along with a group of professional colleagues, is a collection of best practices for all areas of nonprofit governance. 

    A book launch reception and signing will be held Thursday, September 21st at 5 p.m. at St. Joseph's Villa. To register for the reception e-mail DeWitt & Associates.

    The success of every nonprofit organization is directly tied to the leadership of the CEO, the Board Chair, and the Board.  It is to this group of nonprofit pilots, co-pilots, and navigators that Joystick is addressed. Divided into helpful sections, each brief chapter contains specific, practical advice that applies to leadership challenges faced by those who manage and operate these charitable businesses for the benefit of others and society. Sound management and development principles are translated into pragmatic, usable guidance that nonprofit executives and chief volunteers will refer to again and again.

    Purchase a copy from the CreateSpace store or from Amazon.
