Good board members monitor, guide and enable good management; they do not do it themselves.  The Board generally has decision-making powers regarding matters of policy, direction, strategy, and governance of the organisation.  

The IDEA Central board seeks talent in governance, organisational structure and management, communications and fundraising.
