The purpose of the NMCADV Leadership Academy is to give an overview of some of the major nuts and bolts of running domestic violence intervention and prevention agencies for Executive Directors and senior management, especially those who are new to their positions. It will be held over the course of nine months through a series of six 1-day sessions on a variety of topics. Participants will have access to an archive of online readings and videos that will supplement the in-person workshops.
Session #3: Board Relations and Financial management
Featuring Anne Nokes (Center for Nonprofit Excellence) and Leslie Oakes (Anderson School of Management), we will delve into board roles and responsibilities, the relationship and expectations between Executive Directors and boards, and maintaining board-staff boundaries. Our speakers will outline proper fiscal management practices within nonprofit organizations and how to develop financial reports for boards that ensure their ability to meet their fiscal oversight responsibilities.

Our last session is OPEN! We are leaving it open for the important topics that we didn’t think about, that needed more time, or that emerged during the course of the year.
