Understanding Your Board Role

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

  • Learn what “governance” means.
  • Recognize the importance of your bylaws.
  • 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.
  • Own a Governance Workbook packed with detailed information and exercises for you to share your learning with others.

Ideal for:

Anyone who is currently on a board, wants to be on a board, or a refresher for those with past board experience. Especially helpful for Executive Directors and senior staff members. Everything you learn will help you to be more effective and an asset to your organization.


The electronic Governance Workbook is a complementary resource containing resources, exercises, and case studies, and templates for a variety of commonly-used forms.
