Best Practices in Effective Board Governance

Posted by La Salle University on April 20, 2015

Does your board take the fun out of dysfunctional?

A board that doesn’t really understand the paramount importance of fulfilling its true roles and responsibilities is no laughing matter. That’s why we’re giving you another opportunity to learn how to convey this critical message to new or underperforming board members. This class is also valuable to executive directors so that they can be confident in their knowledge of “Best Practices in Effective Board Governance” and can share that information with their boards

Being a board member is more than good intentions and attending meetings. This class is the first step in truly appreciating the roles and responsibilities that the job of board member requires. Attendees will come to comprehend the full responsibilities of board membership in both the context of being part of a larger whole as well as an individual. In addition, this course will show how to maximize the all-important partnership of board and executive director. Participants will develop a deeper understanding of key elements of board responsibility, such as the law’s performance expectations of nonprofit board members, strategic planning, fundraising, financial management, and the care and feeding of the board. Participants will leave knowing that they can now cement their good intentions in best practices, including being able to apply standard tools for board assessment and governance and sample essential policies to their organizations.
