Event Description

This workshop will be a hands-on, interactive and practical ‘mock’ new board member orientation. The presentation is designed for nonprofit executives and board leaders. We will provide an overview of basic best practices, an understanding of who should lead the orientation and participate in the process, and opportunities for participants to draft their own agenda for an orientation. We will also discuss basic governance responsibilities, duties of board members, and roles of board and staff in key nonprofit management areas.
