Only 20% of respondents currently sit on more than two non-profit boards.


Several people commented that sitting on a large number of boards would limit potential effectiveness and commitment as a board member.


It is also worth noting that in some areas, population and environmental factors may limit the number of potential candidates available to take a position on a board.


In these areas suitable candidates may find themselves on multiple boards to help meet the demand. In this survey no respondents reported sitting on five boards and no respondents reported sitting on more than seven boards.
