Your Board’s Responsibilities & Performance

Thursday, February 18th,  2021
2:00 -5:00 EST

How is your board performing? Are your board members engaged in work that will lead and enable your organization to achieve your goals? The BoardSource National Study Leading With Intent found that executive directors and board chairs agree that the board impacts the performance of nonprofits. The study reported the two board characteristics that were ranked as the most important are: the board’s understanding of its roles and responsibilities, and the board’s ability to work as a collaborative team toward shared goals. Please join us for this interactive webinar workshop where we will review and discuss the ten basic responsibilities of a nonprofit board. After we will break into small groups to explore how to translate these responsibilities in real life situations. Working in teams you will explore solutions of common board challenges that often complex and multilayered. You will learn how defining and clarifying your board’s responsibilities will enable your board to address complex issues and lead your organization to higher success.

Who should attend? Executive Directors, Chief Executives, Board Officers and Governance Chairs, Board Members are encouraged to participate in this workshop.
