Presented by Doug Sauer, CEO, New York Council of Nonprofits
Increasingly, Boards of Directors these days are so focused on minimizing risks that exercising proactive leadership aimed at enhancing the value impact of mission activities is too often taking a back seat. This trend is in part because of the growing influence, if not direction, of the compliance industry – the lawyers, accountants, regulators and for, some, in-house compliance officers.
It is getting more and more difficult in this environment to cultivate and effectively and efficiently motivate and organize board leadership. Mission, not compliance however, is what motivates and drives the passion, commitment and resources (time, effort and treasure) of good board members and leaders. Nonprofits are challenged to build board structures that are infused with mission while providing the assurance that risks are being properly managed. This participatory session will explore board models and practices for helping your board find the right balance.
