Effective Nonprofit Governance: How Boards Should Work

Most of us in the nonprofit sector have experienced that disconnect between the way we know boards should work and the way they actually operate. Most nonprofit board members are well-intentioned individuals, but effective board membership requires more.

Our signature work has always been with nonprofit boards and this impactful nonprofit governance class continues to prove itself a meaningful first step in fulfilling the true and mandated roles and responsibilities of the job of board member.

Current and aspiring board members (and executive directors) will come to understand the full responsibilities of board membership, in both the context of being part of a larger whole, as well as individuals. In addition, this class will show how to maximize the all-important partnership of board and executive director.

You’ll 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. Leave this class knowing that you can now cement good intentions in best practices.

When & Where: 3/11/20, 9 am to 4 pm, WHYY, 150 N. 6th St., Phila.
