Event description

Description

Are you new to being a board member or just never got a good overview of what it means to serve on a board? Are you a seasoned board member who needs to help your newer board colleagues understand their role? This session gives insight into effectively performing the roles and responsibilities of a board member. We will discuss basics of nonprofits, legal obligations, personal risk, and the concepts of governance from Governance as Leadership: Reframing the Work of Nonprofit Boards (Chait, Ryan & Taylor 2005), to provide a framework for more effective not-for-profit governance.

By the end of the session participants will understand:
1. What federal and state laws require of a “fiduciary” responsible for the governance of a not-for-profit organization.
2. How to train your board to think and govern like leaders, not managers.

This workshop is designed both for those who are new to boards as well as to more experienced board members wanting to shore up their knowledge and educate fellow board members. It is subsidized by the Secretary of State so admission is only $15 for all attendees.
