So, no idea where to post this question.

Does anyone have any experience of being on a board for a non-profit organization?

I know someone who has been researching starting a non-profit outpatient counseling and education place for several years. She has a lot of knowledge of grant writing, relevant counseling certifications, contacts in state gov't and so on. She's looking for a couple of people to be board members.

We had a meeting today with a couple of other people and it sounds really interesting. She's got an EIN and has the articles of incorporation outlined and mostly written. She wants to get it up and running within a few months. She's not looking for money from us or anything, just people to help make decisions, and she wants it to be fairly egalitarian.

But I have no idea what to expect.

Anyone done this?
