Description

Effective Nonprofit Governance: How Boards Should Work

A PYSC Members-Only Opportunity

This workshop is a professional development opportunity intended for nonprofit leadership staff and board members. The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University will provide this workshop privately for PYSC members. Below is the Nonprofit Center's explanation of course objectives:

Effective board membership requires more than good intentions and meeting attendance. This impactful board training is the first step in appreciating the objective and true roles and responsibilities that the job of board member requires. Attendees will come to comprehend the full responsibilities of board membership, in both the context of being part of a larger whole, as well as an individual. In addition, this course will show how to maximize the all important partnership of board and executive director.

Participants will develop a deeper understanding of key elements of board responsibility, such as the law’s performance expectations of nonprofit board members, strategic planning, fundraising, financial management, and the care and feeding of the board. Participants will leave knowing that they can now cement their good intentions in best practices, including being able to apply standard tools for board
assessment and governance and sample essential policies to their organizations.
