Event: A Productive Board of Directors

From our friends at Nonprofit Works:

A Productive Board of Directors

Nonprofit boards of directors vary widely. Most spend time helping their organizations be more effective, but few give the same attention to how the board could do its job better. A truly effective board understands its role and responsibilities in the context of the entire organization, and is willing to monitor its own performance on a regular basis. Though it can be difficult at first, boards that pay attention to how they’re doing find that it makes their job easier.

Topics covered:

  • Responsibilities and expectations of board members
  • Using a “position description” as a means of guiding your board
  • Structuring relationships between the board, committees, and staff
  • Getting committees to do the work of the board
  • Assessing your board’s needs and recruiting new members
