Event Details

For a nonprofit to succeed, it must have a board that is committed to the organization's mission, possesses substantial leadership skills and expertise, sets policy that guides the nonprofit organization's work and is organized for strategic leadership. Nothing less will do at a time when our organizations are facing new challenges.

Who should attend: current and prospective board members of nonprofit organizations and individuals interested in learning best practices for strengthening a nonprofit board of directors. This session does not specifically deal with charter school governance, but rather effective governance for nonprofits more broadly.

This fast paced session will provide you and your board leadership tools and guidance for implementing proven practices and techniques being used today to strengthen the governance capacity of nonprofit boards. Applying these best practices will lead to immediate improvements in your board’s functioning.

  • Written and individual board and committee descriptions
  • Committee effectiveness
  • Effective Meetings: Use of Consent Agendas and Other Tools
  • Organizational Dashboards
  • Board Leadership and Succession Planning
  • Board and Committee Assessment and Exit Interview Form
  • Governance Committee
  • Incorporating strategic deliberation into every board meeting
