Presented by Doug Sauer, CEO, New York Council of Nonprofits
No matter what the mission, size or life cycle of a nonprofit is, there always is and always will be a dynamic tension between the roles and responsibilities of governance and management. There are basic principles and parameters to guide the boundaries, but as organizational circumstances change, including board members, officers and executives, so does the relationship(s). The management-governance effort has a fluidity that needs to be carefully cultivated, monitored, and managed so that the leaders on both sides of the equation form and maintain an effective and successful partnership. This session will explore, through presentation and group discussion of case scenario’s, the fundamental guiding principles involved, how to prevent unnecessary issues from arising, and knowing when and how to engage or directly intervene when matters go off course.
