Nonprofit Board Governance 101

Understand the basic functions and responsibilities of nonprofit boards, and learn helpful skills to apply to your own board.

Learn WHO does WHAT with WHOM; WHO is responsible for WHAT, WHO makes WHAT decisions and who can participate in those decisions, WHAT happens if you do and what happens if you don’t – and some of the SYSTEMS and PROCEDURES that allow you to do all that.

  • Learn what “governance” means.
  • Know your general ethical and legal responsibilities and financial liabilities.
  • Understand how to govern, manage and implement (who does what!).
  • Become familiar with how to recruit, orient and train new board members.
  • Electronic workbook packed with detailed information and exercises to share your learning with fellow board members.

Ideal for anyone who is currently on a nonprofit board, wants to be on a nonprofit board, or a refresher for those with prior board experience. Everything you learn will help you to be an effective Board Director and an asset to your organization.

Rose Room - use North Entrance (Child Development Centre). Plenty of free parking in lot and on street. 

An electronic workbook will be emailed to you prior to the workshop.
