This chapter reviews research on leadership and management in three association types – grassroots-local, supralocal all volunteer, and paid-staff associations. Leaders within these associations may include board members and chairs, elected volunteer officers, committee Chairs, informal leaders, and other volunteer and paid-staff leaders. We review research pertaining to entry into leadership, leadership succession, leaders’ characteristics, leadership styles, leaders’ relationships to others (both within and outside the association), leader activities and management processes, and leader quality. Our key conclusion is that successful association leadership is usually very different from successful business, government, or nonprofit agency leadership and management. Associations must focus mainly on leading volunteers, not on managing paid staff, who have very different motivations and incentives.We close with usable knowledge, future trends, and research needed.
