Tools for Effective Governance: Board Planning, Retreats, Meetings, & More

January 17, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


A nonprofit is only as strong as its internal leadership, which can include employees, volunteers, and board members. Governing a nonprofit organization is a big responsibility and not one that should be taken lightly; however, many individuals often serve on boards without having any training or orientation of what it means to be a board member—ultimately tasked with the responsibility of building an organization without an understanding of all the tools.
This webinar highlights the responsibilities of board members, shares an overview of different governance models for organizations at different lifecycles, how to host an effective board retreat, hold effective meetings, and assess the board’s performance.
