Description:

Do you want a board that is more engaged and active? High functioning boards understand and meet their responsibilities to govern, raise funds, lead, and plan for the future. When board members fail, it is typically because they do not understand what is expected of them. Boards are central to successful nonprofit organizations. Creating a thriving board takes careful thought and consistent action. This course, designed for Executive Directors/lead staff and board members, explores how to form and maintain a governing body that promotes a legally sound, effective, and successful nonprofit organization. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of board management and leadership, and receive board infrastructure templates and samples that can be immediately implemented. Topics include; board roles and responsibilities, effective committee structure, required and recommended policies, planning, how to recruit and engage an active and knowledgeable board, fiscal responsibility, and fundraising. There is also a pre and post board assessment to help you identify areas of strength and priorities for change.

Course Outline:

  1. Legal Duties of Board Members and Their Leadership Role
  2. Governance Role
  3. Oversight Role and Highly Engaged Volunteer Role
  4. Build and Manage a Competent Board
