Board Governance Series: 2. Structure and Committees
October 17, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
What is the Effective Board Governance series?
Nonprofit board members enrich and govern an organization with their personal expertise, connections, and passion for the cause Ñ and yet, they don’t always come to the job with experience in things like nonprofit fundraising or governance. CVNL knows what strong, smart boards looks like and how critical they are for the health of an organization. Our three-part series on board governance helps organizations diagnose their boards needs and equip their board members with the right training and resources to take their leadership to the next level.
We have divided board governance practices into three (3) workshops: Fundamentals, Structure, and Development.
This series is ideal for nonprofit Executive Directors/CEOs and nonprofit board members. Board chairs and those serving in an officer position or are thinking of doing so, will find the sessions particularly useful.
Workshop 2 – Structures, Committees, and Assessment:
The nonprofit board is essential to making sure that your organization is on track and achieving the greater potential as well as its mission. Without a strong structure, boards can fall prey to a whole host of dysfunctions, not the least of which is wasted time, boring or unfocused meetings, and lack of strategic engagement from the board. Part two of a three-part series, this course will dive deeper into specific structures and assessment practices that strengthen nonprofit boards.
In this workshop you will learn:
Committees, task teams and advisory council structures and functions
Running productive board meetings
Board and Chief Executive Assessment
