    Members of for-profit Boards often are compensated monetarily,
    usually as a flat fee plus reimbursement for expenses. Often,
    the larger the organization and its revenues, the larger the compensation
    to the Board members. Members of nonprofit Boards usually are
    not compensated with a flat fee. They can be compensated as reimbursement
    for expenses.
