Governance Matters: A Conversation with Susan Meier and Alan Cantor

Join us for a discussion with two inspiring nonprofit gurus, Susan Meier and Alan Cantor, as they reflect on the critical role of governance during the Covid-19 pandemic:
  • How are the best boards handling the pandemic?
  • What does board engagement mean in this era of social distancing?
  • How do you maximize engagement in virtual board meetings?
  • How does board culture influence the way it navigates through a crisis?
  • What are the important conversations our boards should be having today?

A recording of the conversation will be sent to all registrants.

This session is offered in partnership with Saint Anselm College Ethics in Governance: Stewardship and Investor Education Forum.
