NEW - Governance Matters: A more powerful board through Policy Governance
Monday, June 4, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Trainer: Nancy Long
Looking for a way to make your board more effective and efficient? Policy Governance® uses policies laid out in advance to help the board clarify its role and to define the relationship between the board and the executive. Since the board's processes are written down, clear, and more stable, the oversight and governance role of the board can be accomplished in less time but with greater consistency. This frees up time to focus on longer-term strategic issues, deepening community connections, and fundraising.
