Nonprofit 101: Dividing Duties Between Board and Staff

What does the board do? How do staff spend their time? Have you ever wondered how the partnership between the board and staff works? Who is actually running the organization—the board or the staff? What are the appropriate roles of both?

Everyone is working towards the same goal—a successful organization that is always striving to meet its mission and serving its clients well.

Consultant Amy Nisenson will share best practices around the duties of the board and staff. Through this workshop you’ll learn more about:

  • Primary role of the board
  • Primary role of staff
  • Roles of Chief Executive versus Board Chair
  • How to have a strong, working partnership between the Board, Chief Executive, the Staff

This workshop is appropriate for anyone—board or staff—interested in better understanding their role within a nonprofit organization.
