Session 1: Skillful, Ethical Governance: Core to Your Board’s Success

In this session, we will explore the building blocks of skillful and ethical governance practices and strategies for ensuring your nonprofit builds a culture of trust and transparency. We will cover ways in which you can facilitate your board’s understanding of the laws governing nonprofits and deepen their understanding of their roles in the boardroom and as committee members. We will also look at ways to re-vamp the quality of board meetings and deepen the engagement of your board. The session will include:

  • elevating your board to engage in high-level leadership roles
  • facilitating the success of your board in their 4 realms of responsibility: governance, accountability, fiduciary, and strategic
  • cultivating a healthy Board – Executive Director relationship
  • real-world examples of how ethical and strategic governance can lead to success (and how their absence can lead to failure)
