Event Description

Energize your board and take your organization to the next level.  This series will give you the fundamentals for a high-performing board focused on strategy, innovation, diversity and accountability. 

Is your board fully engaged at and between meetings?
Are you looking to strengthen your board’s effectiveness?
Does your board have clearly defined roles and responsibilities?
Does your board have a vision for the future? 

Learn what every director needs to know:

  • Characteristics of high-performing boards and how you can enhance the performance of your own board
  • Key financial accountabilities and responsibilities associated with the role of a director
  • How to attract, recruit and retain the best boards
  • Recognize strategic opportunities and risks
  • Identify best practices in governance in the nonprofit sector 

Participants will receive:

  • A professional development opportunity that can help build your resume
  • A certificate of participation for completing all 4 sessions 

Level: Beginner-Intermediate
