Introduction to Board Governance

September 23


Boards are essential to the oversight and operation of non-profit organizations, and in fact, non-profit organizations which are properly governed have demonstrated to be more effective and more likely to succeed, than poorly governed ones. However, understanding what a board does and for what it is responsible can be challenging. Our Introduction to Board Governance workshop will help you meet the challenge!

This workshop is designed for Executive Directors, senior staff, and board members who are new to their positions and wish to better understand board governance.
