Our Governance Matters trainings are for community members who want a quick refresher on a specific governance topic, and are designed to lay the groundwork for a high level of board performance.
Designed for busy professionals, these trainings are scheduled before work hours for those who need to manage their volunteer service outside of work time, and can be a strong complement to any nonprofit board orientation.
These courses were developed at the request of local board members who want to better understand their basic legal duty to the boards they serve.
All nonprofit board members, executive directors and other staff involved in board governance are encouraged to attend.
Sharpen your skills as a board member in:
- Fiduciary leadership, including: duties of care, loyalty, and obedience
- Legal and ethical responsibilities of board members
- Defining challenges and reviewing performance using facts, finances, and reports
- Board/ED relations
- Board’s role in strategy
- Embracing generative thinking
These courses are offered periodically throughout the year. Contact Program Manager, Andrew Robinson, to find out when the next course is scheduled.
