Are you hearing from board members that they don't feel fully involved and “useful?” You’re not alone! As nonprofits have grown and responded to new challenges in their business environment, there is growing recognition of the importance of establishing a governance model in which the board focuses on the strategic, and the CEO is empowered to act quickly without processing decisions through committees and the board. Healthy as this is, the loss of “hands on” opportunities where many board members spent their time and found their “reward,” has left chairs and CEOs puzzled as to how they can engage the board in a way that is value-added for all.
Topics will include:
- How governance is changing and why
- Getting board members off to a good start
- Meetings that generate enthusiasm, excitement, and engagement
- Board work plans that document commitment to actions aligned with the strategic plan
- Individual and collective board evaluations and continuous improvement
