Roles & Responsibilities of a Non-Profit Board

March 31 at4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Board members of an incorporated, non-profit organization are legally responsible for the governance of the organization and are expected to develop, implement and monitor policies that will allow the organization to carry out its mission.

Beyond their legal duties, board members are also important resources – they contribute to the culture, effectiveness, and strategic focus, as well as act as ambassadors and advocates for the work being done by the organization. While a board may appoint staff and/or committees to carry out the work related to its policies, programs and services, the board is ultimately responsible for meeting outcomes.

In this workshop, participants will learn the best practices of board governance, the legal duties and responsibilities of board directors, and risk management that will ensure that the organization has the right resources to advance its mission.

Topics Covered Include

  • Key roles and responsibilities of the board and its members
  • Common board governance structures and which one best fits your organization
  • How committees can support the work of the board
  • Understanding bylaws, policies and procedures
  • Identifying the legal duties and liabilities of the board

Who should attend?
This workshop was designed to assist individuals with little (or no) board governance experience, those who would like to refresh their knowledge, or those who are working with boards that have gotten a little off track.
