Event description

Description

While board leadership represents one of the greatest indicators of nonprofit effectiveness, too often organizations struggle with the issue of accountability in their governance functions. This workshop will examine some basic, yet effective management tools that help to improve accountability while creating a culture of high performance in nonprofit boards. This suite of tools can help non profits improve their governance functions by applying effective management practices to the area of board development and communications.

Board assessment provides board members the opportunity to critically examine the ways in which they can improve areas of governance function on a regular basis; job descriptions provide clarity around responsibilities and expectations; while Board member annual plans ensure accountability and improve engagement on an individual level. Through this workshop participants will learn how to develop and implement these important tools in their organizations.

In this workshop, participants will explore:

  • A range of management and accountability tools for boards

  • How to administer and deliver assessment results

  • Sample templates for job descriptions for board members

  • How to develop and implement these important tools in their organizations.

Program Focus: Board Governance

Target Audience: Board Members, Executive Directors, & Senior development and strategy officers who work on developing board effectiveness
