Event Description

Some boards of directors provide dynamic and effective leadership that can be felt throughout the organization. Others are “like parsley on fish – decorative but useless” (to quote Irving Olds).
What makes the difference?

In this workshop we will explore the characteristics of high-performing boards and how you can enhance the performance of your own board of directors. Through the use of case studies, group discussions and print resources, Nathan Garber will cover some of the most critical issues in nonprofit governance including:

• Roles and Responsibilities
     The three most important duties of board members
     The five key responsibilities of the board
• Governance models. Do you have one? Do you need one?
• Building and maintaining a strong board-executive director relationship
• Board Structure
    How big should your board be?
    What committees do you need?
• Running effective meetings makes for more engaged board member
    How to plan the agenda

• Nonprofit Corporations and Registered Charities: how to keep your nonprofit and/or charitable status
