Foundations of Board Governance
March 19; Thurs 10am to 5pm
Effective Board governance rarely happens by accident - it is generally the result of proactive and intentional efforts to build capacity and enhance performance. This workshop provides an overview of the key elements of a strong Board, and introduces a framework and tools for participants to assess their own Board strengths and areas for improvement. A participatory approach facilitates knowledge-sharing, and a 30-page workbook is provided.
This workshop will be of interest to individuals who serve on not-for-profit Boards and seek greater effectiveness!
Leadership: Bruce Smith is an organizational consultant, mediator and facilitator based in Liverpool, NS. He works with not-for-profit Boards on all aspects of governance, including Board-Executive relations, monitoring and evaluating performance, and strategic planning.
